Richly illustrated, this book focuses on the built culture of the labour movement, largely constructed or funded by workers themselves, whose history and background has until now been largely ignored or forgotten.

This fascinating survey ranges from the communal buildings of the early 19th-century political radicals, Owenites and Chartists, through Arts and Crafts influenced socialist structures of the late Victorian and Edwardian period to the grand union ‘castles’ of the mid-20th century.
