The `hidden landscape' of Britain is full of reminders of our religious history, from shrines and churches to sacred or `special' places associated with saints, martyrs and such like. Accompanied by evocative photographs Mick Sharp discusses the famous sites and remote places of Britain, the traces left by early Celtic saints, hermits and visionaries, martyrs and militants, relics, shrines and miracles, and places of pilgrimage. A wonderful book that `enables us to experience the sense of the sacred which still permeates these Holy Places'.

During the thousand years and more that separated the final collapse of the Romano–British civilization from the Reformation of the 16th century, the British landscape filled with sites that still remind us that this was once a land of saints and martyrs, shrines and pilgrimages. This evocative guide reveals the meaning of this landscape, so rich in holiness, by exploring the lives and legends of the saints who made it. In the process, it transports us back in time to a place where evil spirits, visions, and miracles were commonplace. In words and photographs, The Way and the Light enables the reader to experience the sense of sacred that still permeates Britain’s holiest places.
