From a small market town to its heyday as a fashionable watering place and recognition as ëthe most complete Regency town in Britainí, through to its subsequent reinvention as a centre for religion, education, shopping and festivals, Cheltenham has a proud and distinctive identity. This extraordinary history is embodied in the buildings that have shaped the town, from the medieval church (now its Minster) and the Montpellier Rotunda, where a young Gustav Holst performed, to the worldís first (outside of London) purpose-built Masonic hall and one of the countryís most iconic buildings of the modern era, the GCHQ Doughnut.??In this unique study well-known local author David Elder guides the reader on a tour of its greatest treasures, revealing that Cheltenhamís history is sometimes complex but never dull.
