About this title


"A humdinging page-turner of a book" - The Spectator "This book will give great pleasure" -Country Life Traditional English rectories and vicarages have been neglected by the Church in the post-war years, but have become highly desirable to property buyers, and are now cherished by their new private owners. They combine many coveted qualities: their fine architecture, their air of civilisation, their charm and character, the traditional values and the essential "Englishness" they evoke, their large gardens and often splendidly rural locations. This book is about these fine houses, their place in English history and the history of the Church, their architecture, their architects, their contribution to our culture, and their sometimes eccentric occupants-both clerical and secular. This new edition has includes additional material and 68 plates (most of which are in full colour).
