About Lynn Pearson
I'm an independent architectural historian, writer and photographer specialising in industrial buildings, sporting architecture, public art and ceramics. I've been based in Newcastle upon Tyne since the 1980s and have published well over twenty books. My recent book, England’s Co-operative Movement: An Architectural History (Historic England/Liverpool University Press, 2020), won the Association for Industrial Archaeology’s 2021 Peter Neaverson Award for Outstanding Scholarship in Industrial Archaeology. I won the same award in 2015 for my book on brewery architecture, Built to Brew (Historic England, 2014). The Crowood Press published Victorian and Edwardian British Industrial Architecture in 2016. Amongst my other books are Street Furniture (Amberley Publishing, 2022) and the Tile Gazetteer, written for the Tiles and Architectural Ceramics Society, which was runner-up in the 2005 National Reference Book of the Year Awards.
