Parissh Churches of Wiltshire : A Guide

Cover-Design-and-Text-small-2


This book is the first comprehensive guide to churches in Wiltshire. It will encourage many people to explore not only the nationally significant churches but also the smaller and less obvious places of worship that are tucked up away and easily by-passed. Where appropriate, the author describes new features that have augmented the historic character, such as Millennium stained glass windows, new sculptures, altar frontals, and memorials. Also touched upon are renewal and conservation measures, and the current trend for re-ordering. The book provides a useful guide to those visiting the county who wish to look beyond the main tourist places.

The book comprises:
- 206 pages
- Over 300 (Anglican and Catholic) churches covered
- Illustrated with more than 700 colour photographs and drawings

The price for this wonderful book is 20, and all profits go to St Mary’s Church in Burton.
