The unique, the unusual, the rare - these are the features that form the criteria for selection in Brian Harris's wonderful guide to churches and cathedrals. Here is a man who, in the style of Pevsner, has travelled the length and breadth of England and Wales in his quest for the most fascinating churches and cathedrals, recording his visits in minute detail and creating a marvellous treasury of facts about our religious heritage. Each church comes with a list of key must-see features - whether it be the particularly beautiful fan-vaulted cloisters of Gloucester Cathedral, the tombstone carved by Eric Gill in the graveyard of St Mary and St Lawrence in Great Waltham, Essex, or the glowing great East window in the choir at York Minster, made of the largest single area of medieval stained glass in the world. Alongside the gazetteer to 500 churches come amazing stories about every aspect of church architecture from bells and mazes, to maidens' garlands and stained glass sundials, vamping horns and wooden effigies. Fully illustrated throughout, this book will become a standard work of reference for anyone who loves visiting churches and wants to know more.
