This easy-reference guide is packed with information and detailed illustrations, explaining everything you need to know about churches of England - those buildings we see all around us, but about which many of us know so little. 

The local church is a familiar landmark in every town, city and village. The story of its past is the story of its people for whom, down the centuries, it was the centre of the community. But how many of us actually understand why it was built in a particular place, how it was constructed, or why it was decorated in such a style? 

Using his own drawings, diagrams and photographs, author Trevor Yorke takes the reader through all aspects of English churches. The book is intended to be an easy-to-understand guide for anyone making their first step into this subject.

Along the way, you'll take a journey through the history of the English church, looking at how changing architectural fashions altered the style of construction over time, and how the materials used can reveal so much about them. You'll also step inside the church, to reveal the various fixtures and fittings within, and the clues these provide about a particular building's past.

For anyone wishing to continue their exploration of the subject, at the end of the book you'll find a list of churches to visit.
