About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1940, this book contains a series of vignettes based around visits to British churches. Written in the shadow of the Second World War, the text was partly intended to console readers; providing them with solace in the beauty of the surrounding ecclesiastical architecture. Containing numerous illustrative figures, this is a highly readable book that will be of value to anyone with an interest in British churches and travel writing.
