    Over the centuries, countless buildings have been built and demolished throughout the county of Ayrshire. This informative and beautifully

    illustrated book looks at a wide selection of these, from castles that have been destroyed or replaced by modern mansions, to country houses

    that have succumbed to dry rot or lack of funds for their upkeep. Dane Love also visits various burghs and villages, rediscovering the lost

    architecture of everyday buildings including churches, banks, tollbooths, public halls, schools, shops and houses.

    Ayrshire was once rich in mining and other industries that have now disappeared. This book details the county's lost coalmines and the

    associated miners' rows, as well as former cotton mills, power stations, shipyards, factories and other places of work. As well as lost buildings

    from the distant past, Dane Love includes some more recent examples of architectural losses. In some cases these are welcome, but in many

    they are regrettable. Only through this book will the reader discover just how much of Ayrshire's heritage has been lost over the years.
