About This Book

Carol Cragoe tells the fascinating story of 1,000 years of the English church, investigating the many ways in which our incredible heritage of 4,000 churches has been central to life in villages, towns and cities, and how it forms a key part of our English identity and collective memory. Including famous, unusual, controversial and less well-known churches, she takes the reader on a journey through English history, tracing the steps of those who designed, built, funded, worshipped and worked in them over many centuries of change. The English Church offers an in-depth discussion of a broad range of examples from around the country and across the centuries, including different religions and architectural styles, and incorporates a guide to how to read and research a church.
