Gothic Revival

Gothic designs, based on medieval, Tudor and Jacobean, were introduced in the late 18th and early 19th centuries (see Strawberry Hill Gothic). It became the prominent British style for Queen Victoria's reign, following the writings and designs of A.W.N. Pugin and others from the 1840s onwards.
