    Fine guidebook for the essence of England

    Mead covers the following cathedrals and environs in great detail: London (St Paul's, Westminster, and Southwark), Canterbury, Rochester, St Albans, Bury St Edmunds, Ely, Norwich, Peterborough, Southwell, Lincoln, York, and Durham. These are many, but certainly not all, of the important English cathedral cities. The book is well written, detailed, and illustrated with maps and colour photographs. A similar volume covering Salisbury, Winchester, Wells, Exeter, Gloucester, Hereford, Worcester, etc., would be most welcome.
