The church porches of medieval England are among the most beautiful and glorious aspects of ecclesiastical architecture; but in comparison with its stained glass, for example, they have been relatively little studied. This book, the first detailed study of them for over a century, gives new insights into this often over-looked element. Focussing on the rich corpus of late-medieval East Anglian porches, it begins with two chapters placing them in a broad cultural outline and their context; it then moves on to consider their commissioning and design, their architecture and ornamentation, their use and their meaning. This book will appeal to all those interested in church fabric and function.

MEDIA REVIEWS
As someone who has spent most of the last decade and more visiting and studying East Anglian churches, often in minute detail, I can only state that this work is an inspiration to do just that. It is a rarity when a volume appears that allows you to see a subject that you thought you were largely familiar with, through totally fresh eyes. -- Matthew J. Champion * Norfolk Archaeology *
East Anglian Church Porches and their Medieval Context is a very welcome addition to the subject, as church porches were previously under-researched and little understood as an integral part of church design. The documentary research, the analysis and the recording of 119 extant examples are very impressive. * The Local Historian *
