Drawing from the thousands of churches in England, architectural historian Robert Harbison offers a detailed guide to 550 of the most outstanding examples. From the magnificent wool churches of East Anglia to the rustic simplicity of a little church in Cumbria, he describes the buildings and their contents with infectious enthusiasm and lightly worn scholarship. The Daily Telegraph Guide to England’s Parish Churches is complete with color photos and regional maps, an introduction to church architecture, appendices listing the churches notable for particular features, such as frescoes or fonts, and a glossary of architectural terms. Robert Harbison teaches at the Architectural Association and the University of North London. His previous books include Thirteen Ways, Eccentric Spaces, and The Built, the Unbuilt and the Unbuildable.
