In the 1850s, English archirects tried to find a style that would go with steam, glass and cast iron; they chose Gothic. This four part series looks at the men associated with the Victorian Gothic Revival and some of their famous constructions; including the House of Parliament, the Natural History Museum, the Albert Memorial, Westminster Abbey and a number of country houses.

Part 1: Charles Barry & Augustus Pugin, Part 2: William Butterfield & Gilbert Scott, Part 3: Alfred Waterhouse & Norman Shaw, Part 4: Sir Ninian Comper, William Robinson & Sir Edwin Lutyens.
