This is the last in a series of four volumes describing Bedfordshire's parish churches in detail. The aim is to present a detailed account of each church together with text from five important nineteenth century sources. It is based on specially commissioned research, bringing together original official sources and contemporary accounts. Many churches are illustrated, often with unusual drawings, watercolours, lantern slides, etc. This final volume comprises a description of the newer, twentieth century churches in the county; a summary of the main stages of restoration for each of the older churches; addenda and corrigenda to parts 1-3; and an analytical index to the whole series. Part 1 Ampthill to Gravenhurst volume 73. Part 2 Harlington to Roxton volume 77. Part 3 Salford to Yelden volume 79. The volume includes a piece In Memoriam to Betty Chambers 1932-2000.
