BBC: "The man who hated the transformation of Britain: Nairn was worried that Southampton (top image) ...would soon look like Carlisle (bottom)"

"Six decades ago a critic launched a withering attack on the tendency toward a bland 'subtopia' in British towns.

"April 1955 witnessed a changing of the guard. That month Anthony Eden replaced the 80-year-old Sir Winston Churchill as prime minister.

"Two months later, the Architectural Review magazine printed 'Outrage', an essay by critic Ian Nairn. It sparked a debate over architecture, conservation and planning which still resonates today.

"In Outrage, the singular and passionate Nairn recounted a journey he had made in a Morris Minor from Southampton to Carlisle."
