The architect John Wood the elder (1704-1754) was one of the most successful town planners amongst English 18th century architects, and also one of the most eccentric; for example, as a fervent Freemason, he revived certain mystical emblems of Stuart religiosity and carved them on a major building project to evoke the sun worship of a lost Druid civilisation. This book was the first biography to be attempted in the two centuries since his death.
