The Guidebook

Although many people are familiar with some of the buildings by Decimus Burton, such as The Temperate or Palm Houses at Kew, there are so many projects, either still in existence, or lost to posterity, that the students of Decimus are not aware of. Some of these buildings and structures are open to the public. Others are in private hands and not open to the public. 

The Decimus Burton Society is currently working on a guidebook for those interested in his work, that will list all known buildings and structures, and give brief details of each, as well as details of those that the public can visit.
