The 15th century Holstentor in Lubeck, Germany with it's famous double "witch hats".
Most of the old town of Lubeck is a miracle of gothic brick preservation.6

London


Butler's Wharf

Butler's Wharf was built between 1871 and 1873 as a shipping wharf and warehouse. Since the 1980s, it has been transformed from a decaying, derelict site into luxury apartments with shops and restaurants on the ground floor.

The Natural History Museum

Built in 1881, The Natural History Museum is often decribed as "a cathedral of nature". Note the use of animals as gargoyles, some extremely prominent, others hidden away. The level of detail is astonishing.

Stanley Dock, Liverpool. The Disused Tobacco Warehouse is the largest brick building in the world with 27 million bricks and today is still the worlds largest warehouse.

Are there any plans to restore this great building, or has the credit crunch put paid to that?

The brick facade has remained unchanged since 1500.
