    DescriptionSimon Jenkins has travelled the length and breadth of England to select its thousand best churches. Organised by county, each church is described - often with delightful asides - and given a star-rating from one to five. All of the county sections are prefaced by a map locating each church, and lavishly illustrated with colour photos from the Country Life archive. Jenkins contends that these churches house a gallery of vernacular art without equal in the world. Here, he brings that museum to public attention.

    Review quote
    'Marvellous ! this is a book to be kept by the bed or, better still, in the car. A constant excuse to leave the bold highway and let the imagination, body and soul wander a little' - Anna Ford, Daily Telegraph 'Every house in England should have a copy of this book' - Auberon Waugh, Literary Review 'Just to look at it reawakens an atavistic urge to tread where our ancestors have trod, to seek out the treasures that they have left us ! the perfect guide' - Clive Aslet, Country Life
