Visiting historic buildings is one of Britain's most popular pursuits. But, all too often, visitors are frustrated by existing guidebooks, which assume much prior knowledge of architectural history and terms. This highly illustrated, accessible book presents a completely new look at cathedrals, abbeys and churches through the eyes of a vastly experienced working stone-mason. Thomas Maude uses well-chosen historical and technical information, colourful anecdote and his hands-on knowledge of building structures and technique to convey the excitement which they hold in store. This remarkable and engaging book will help any visitor understand and enjoy the medieval ecclesiastical buildings of Britain - from the humble parish church to the mighty cathedral.
