The local church is a familiar landmark in every town, city and village. The story of its past is the story of the people for whom, down the centuries, it was the centre of the community. But how many people actually understand the reason for it being built in that particular place, how it was constructed, or why it was decorated in such a style? Discovering this information can sometimes be difficult due to the diversity of local building materials used, and to the renovation and rebuilding of more recent years. But there are always clues, both inside and outside. In this informative guide, Trevor Yorke places the period styles of church fabric and decoration into an easy to read form that is packed with photographs, pictures, and diagrams. His simple but graphic approach will be welcomed by all for whom a visit to a church is also a brief journey through time itself.
