Wherever we turn we encounter churches and other Christian buildings. We tend to take them for granted, and miss the great tapestry of social history, geography, folklore, archaeology, art and popular culture which is woven into their fabric. With its lively and stimulating text and superb photographs this book is intended as an introduction to the fascinating story behind Wiltshire’s rich legacy of churches, and as a showpiece for the remarkable architectural and artistic heritage that they embrace. When first published (under a slightly different title) in 1993 this book was warmly received, and it has now been completely redesigned, with revised text and many new images. From Salisbury Cathedral to the humblest wayside chapel, Wiltshire’s places of worship bear witness to a long and often surprising history. This book provides the ideal companion.
