The Day Parliament Burned Down

Caroline Shenton

  • Reconstructs the gripping hour by hour story of the fire as it swept through the 800 year old buildings
  • Recaptures the sense of shock experienced at the time in the face of this sudden national catastrophe
  • Skilfully tells the story against the background of the day, from the slums of Westminster to the impact of the Great Reform Act
