Description

For centuries church buildings have defined the English landscape and acted as landmarks by land and sea. First and foremost places of worship and mission, they have often been used by the wider community, preserving local stories. But they have also been integral to the country’s history, telling the story of Christianity in England as well as marking significant events from our past.

The churches featured in this beautifully illustrated volume have been drawn from each of the 42 dioceses to showcase their varied architecture, art and uses. They are all extraordinary buildings and many of them contain exceptional treasures. This book pays tribute not only to the exquisite architectural and artistic heritage of our nation, but also to the remarkable unsung heroes of our church buildings: the clergy and the many volunteers who keep them open and sustainable. We hope it will encourage many more to visit, enjoy and support the Church of England’s unique heritage of nearly 16,000 church buildings.
