Free Seats for All by Gill Hedley
Free Seats for All: The boom in church building after Waterloo
An astonishing number of churches were built and hundreds of thousands of new spaces provided in parish churches in the years after Waterloo. Much of this work was carried out thanks to the work of the Incorporated Church Building Society (ICBS), our predecessor charity.
The story of church building after Waterloo, written by Gill Hedley, is full of fascinating detail about the people who helped set up the ICBS and about the thousands of churches supported by its grants.
2018 sees the bicentenary of the Incorporated Church Building Society. With a message of support from our Vice Patron, HRH The Duke of Gloucester, and a foreword by our Vice President Bettany Hughes, this book is a must-read for anyone with an interest in the history of churches.
The book is now available to order for £15.00 (RRP £20). This includes postage and packing. Orders will be fulfilled in May 2018.
