The Norwich Historic Churches Trust, entrusted with the care of 18 of Norwich's redundant medieval churches, works not only to maintain them but to increase awareness of architectural, historical and other related aspects of our medieval ecclesiastical heritage. This is the first of two books the Lasse Press is publishing in association with the Trust, with all profits going to support its work. It focuses on historically oriented papers from its 2014 and 2015 conferences. An authoritative but also entertaining (and at times eccentric) collection, which ranges well beyond Norwich itself, they are copiously illustrated and should appeal to all those interested in the history of Norwich or in medieval churches more generally.
The collection is edited by Nicholas Groves, convenor of the conferences and co-author of William Stephen Gilly, also published by the Lasse Press.
