More than fifty astonishingly varied churches, a group of buildings without parallel anywhere in the world, are crowded into Europe's financial centre, the City of London. Simon Bradley explores their unique history, arcitecture, rich fittings and stained glass. Lost churches are listed, and their little known churchyards explored. Numerous text figures and excellent photographs (newly taken by the Royal Commission on Historical Monuments) help make this the indispensable guide to the church architecture of London's ancient 'Square Mile'. London: The City Churches is the second paperback addition to Pevsner's Buildings of England series.
