Illustrated with photographs, in colour & black and white with plans & maps. From the cover: “The parish church is such a familiar feature of the landscape that we have ceased to see it for what it is. These buildings are often richer in history than anything else in the neighbourhood and full of works of art, from carved bench ends and gargoyles to stained glass and embroideries — all from the hands of skilled men who laboured for years in the service of the Church. What is true at the level of the parish is magnified in the case of our cathedrals, as remarkable and awe-inspiring now as they were when first built centuries ago. Today, as at some periods in the past, this rich legacy is threatened, partly by the ravages of time and lack of adequate resources to offset them, and partly because falling church attendances mean that many of these buildings are far too large for present congregations or clearly redundant.
