Synopsis:

A beautiful and practical up-to-date guide to over two thousand of Britain’s best parish churches.

Although now most famous for his poetry, Sir John Betjeman’s great passion was churches. For over fifty years his guide, regularly updated, has been the eminent authority and the most distinguished guide to the best churches to visit.

This new edition, in full colour throughout and illustrated with over 350 specially commissioned photographs, covers over 2,500 of the very best churches in England, Scotland and Wales. Fully updated by bestselling author Richard Surman, this is the most complete and up to date guide to Britain’s church heritage.

Review:

“Even if it had broken no fresh ground Mr. Betjeman’s introduction would still make this book unique. It must give the keenest pleasure to all church enthusiasts, whether believers or unbelievers.” – Sunday Times

“A vade mecum of church-lovers for many years to come. The whole book is prefaced by an editorial essay which is pure gold.” – Times Literary Supplement

“Without exaggeration, holds enough information and inspiration for a lifetime of church visiting.” – Times Educational Supplement

“To Betjeman a church was touched by the hand of God and blessed as a place of private worship. In my youth, he guided me and taught me that a great Gothic church should, by the sheer power of its oratory, ‘Force us to our knees in prayer.’ ”
