To follow up the popular book Cathedrals of the Church of England, Janet Gough and the ChurchCare team now explore the other 16,000 churches of the Church of England, from the parish churches at the nation's heart to the restrained splendour of royal foundation King's College Chapel, Cambridge.
For centuries church buildings have defined the English landscape and acted as landmarks by land and sea. First and foremost places of worship and mission, they have often been used by the wider community, preserving local stories. But they have also been integral to the country’s history, telling the story of Christianity in England as well as marking significant events from our past.
The churches featured in this beautifully illustrated volume have been drawn from each of the 42 dioceses to showcase their varied architecture, art and uses. They are all extraordinary buildings and many of them contain exceptional treasures, from the delight in finding internationally renowned brasses and wall paintings in unassuming Trotton parish church (c.1300) to the ethereal ship-like Ripon College chapel, Cuddesdon, completed in 2013.
