A super illustrated guide to the unique treasures that lie within England's churches and cathedrals, featuring 300 color photos and a county-by-county gazetteer. 
The unique, the unusual, the rare—Brian Harris has traveled all over England, and parts of Wales, in his quest for the most fascinating churches and cathedrals in the land.
Each church comes with a list of must-see features—whether it be the glorious fan-vaulted cloisters of Gloucester Cathedral or a singular monument to children's toys in the church at Ghilham in Kent.
Along with a gazetteer of more than 500 churches, there are intriguing, often amazing stories about every aspect of church architecture, from bells and mazes to stained-glass sundials and wooden effigies.
Richly illustrated with 300 color photos and maps, this is an exceptional work of reference for anyone who loves churches or eccliastical architecture.

  •     This is an excellent reference guide the churches and cathedrals in England. I am using for research that I am doing for a paper I am writing. It would also serve as a guide for tourists who plan on traveling in England with the intention of seeing some of the less visited site of interest.
  •     Brian Harris is a personal friend and his book mirrors his attention to detail. Anyone interested in English church history and architecture would be well served having his book in their collection.
