9780709089070: English Thatched Churches

This remarkable guide is devoted to the picturesque thatched churches in the English countryside. This invaluable and unique reference tool presents the churches county by county and is enhanced with a delightful host of color photographs of the churches and their interiors. In addition to the artistry of the thatched roofs, the interiors reveal a host of treasures such as 17th-century wall paintings, intricate stone carvings by Norman masons, ornate wood carvings, rood screens, and the skill of the stained glass window designers. The churches also give an insight into the history of England, as most consist of an architectural mix of various centuries, ranging from the Saxon period to the 20th century. A concise glossary of architectural terms is given, together with a short summary of the saints to whom the thatched churches are dedicated.
