English Parish Churches and Chapels
English Parish Churches and Chapels: Architecture, Art and People
English Parish Churches and Chapels: Architecture, Art and People is a beautiful and inspiring book of photographic portraits produced by Dr Matthew Byrne, Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society, for the National Churches Trust.
With a message of support from our Patron Her Majesty the Queen, and a foreword from our Vice President Michael Palin, the book celebrates the huge variety of English churches and chapels. Through detailed descriptions and wonderful images, it explores churches ancient and modern, large and small, urban and rural, many of which have received grant funding from the National Churches Trust.
"In this rich and detailed book, Matthew Byrne selects a collection of places of worship to prove what potential treasure troves of local - and national - history they represent." Michael Palin
