England's thousand best churches
Parish churches are England's glory. They enshrine the history of people living far from the capital, court, and Parliament. These people -- their art, architecture, and faith -- are seldom recorded or celebrated; their parish church is their most public monument. Simon Jenkins has traveled the length and breadth of England in search of his thousand best churches. Organized by county, each church is described, often with delightful asides, and is given a star rating from one to five. The county sections are prefaced by a map locating each church, and throughout, the churches and their surroundings are beautifully illustrated with color photos. From the Norman grotesques of Kilpeck to the rose Madonna of Willoughby, these parish churches house a museum of vernacular art without equal in the world. Now in England's Thousand Best Churches, Simon Jenkins has brought forth this rich gallery for all to see.
