This is a superb book, which has become a key reference for visiting historic churches. It is detailed, historically accurate, but also has a warmth from someone who has visited and "felt" the ChurchMy only regret is that there was a "App" which allowed you to locate the churches on a map and some limited detail.
This was fantastic for those times when you have time to waste, look up the nearest church and off you went. Unfortunately the App has not been updated and no longer works with more modern software versions.
