English Churches Explained


SKU: 1017 Category:


(Trevor Yorke)  The local church is a familiar landmark in every town, city and village.  But how many people actually understand the reason for it being built in that particular place, how it was constructed, or why it was decorated in such a style.  Discovering this information can sometimes be difficult because of the diversity of local building materials used, and the renovation and rebuilding of more recent years.  But there are always clues, both inside and out.

In this book the author describes the period styles of church fabric and decoration into an easy-to-read form that is packed with photographs, drawings and diagrams.
