This book is intended to be a brief outline of the influences that shaped his career and to provide a guide to some of his best work. The first section of the book examines his early life and pupillage first under Edmund Kirby, then with John L. Pearson, and his place in the architectural world of the 1890s and thereafter. His role as architect to the Ecclesiastical Commissioners, his office establishment and methods of working are discussed. His designs for new churches and secular buildings of all types and his many extensions and alterations to historic churches are described in chronological order. His contribution to the conservation of historic buildings and his projects in five English and Welsh cathedrals are examined, with his work in Wales receiving a more detailed analysis. The final chapter ranges over Caroe’s achievements in designs for woodcarving, stone sculpture, embroideries, base and precious metals, monuments and memorials. Fine
