Product Description

  • Explores a comprehensive range of religious institutions, from parish churches nestled at the heart of village communities to the grandeur of King's College Chapel, Cambridge
  • Follows on from the popular book Cathedrals of the Church of England

To follow up the popular book Cathedrals of the Church of England, Janet Gough and the ChurchCare team now explore the other 16,000 churches of the Church of England, from the parish churches at the UK's heart to the restrained splendor of royal foundation King's College Chapel, Cambridge.

First and foremost places of worship, they have also been integral to England's history. One church has been chosen from each diocese to showcase their varied architecture, art, treasures and uses, from the delight in finding internationally renowned brasses and wall paintings in unassuming Trotton parish church (c.1300) to the ethereal ship-like Ripon College chapel, Cuddesdon, completed in 2013.

The fresh and perceptive pen portraits of each church are illustrated with images by the acclaimed photographer Paul Barker.
