Notable architects during the Edwardian era included Edwin Lutyens, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, and Giles Gilbert Scott. In spite of the popularity of Art Nouveau in Europe, the Edwardian Baroque style of architecture was widely favoured for public structures and was a revival of Christopher Wren inspired designs of the late 17th and early 18th centuries. The change or reversal in taste from the Victorian eclectic styles corresponded with the historical revivals of the period, most prominently earlier Georgian and Neoclassical styles of the late 18th and early 19th centuries.
White City Stadium, used for the 1908 Summer Olympics, was the first Olympic Stadium in the United Kingdom. Built on the site of the Franco-British Exhibition, it had a seating capacity of 68,000 and was opened by King Edward VII on 27 April 1908. It was the largest structure of its type in the world at the time, and was designed to be awe inspiring and thereby enhance the love of large scale spectacle that characterised Edwardian London.
Beamed period styled properties look superb with the classic look and feel the Edwardian blend clay roof tile offer. More modern properties take on a more natural look with the gorgeous patina that this hand formed clay roof tile brings.

After the Norman Conquest, county rather than shire became the more usual term to describe Englands main sub-divisions, but their boundaries and role remained pretty much the same.
The invading tribes established a number of castles in the county of Essex, to help protect the new elites in a hostile country. There were castles at Colchester, Castle Hedingham, Rayleigh, Pleshey and elsewhere. Hadleigh Castle was developed much later, in the thirteenth century.
After the arrival of the Normans, the Forest of Essex was established, this was a Royal forest which covered the large majority of the county, however it is important to note that at that time, the term forest was a legal term, and that at this stage had a weak correlation between woods and commons and the extent of the forest, most of the Forest of Essex was at that time farmland. An analysis of Domesday returns for Essex was conducted and the findings were able to estimate that the county of Essex was 20% wooded in 1086 with the proportion declining steeply between that point and the depopulation associated with the Black Death. In 1204, the area north of the Stanestreet was disafforested. Gradually, the areas subject to forest law diminished, until in 1878 what remained of the forest of Essex was disafforested, but at various times they included the forests of Writtle and Waltham Forest, as well as Epping Forest and Hainault Forest.
