This compact and accessible book is for anyone who would like to understand more about the architectural history of English churches. Clear and easy to use, the text explains the key components of church architecture-stylistic developments, functional requirements, regional variations, and arcane vocabulary. Readers can equip themselves to explore historic churches knowledgeably, evaluate dates and restoration phases, interpret stained glass and monuments, and make their own discoveries. Written by one of the editors of the Pevsner Architectural Guides and distilling years of experience visiting churches, the book includes explanations of how to learn more from building plans, tips for further research, searching for clues, and analyzing the evidence.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"An excellent new book from the publishers of the Pevsner Architectural Guides. . . It's greatest achievement is to make the English parish church not just comprehensible but revelatory to the interested visitor, and to remind us that even in the smallest village there are marvellous artistic treasures that we do not notice, or whose significance and rarity we fail to grasp."--Simon Hughes, Daily Telegraph
