English Thatched Churches by Michael Billett
This remarkable guide is devoted to the picturesque thatched churches in the English countryside. This invaluable and unique reference tool presents the churches county-by-county and is enhanced with a delightful host of colour photographs of the churches and their interiors. In addition to the artistry of the thatched roofs, the interiors reveal a host of treasures such as fourteenth-century wall paintings, intricate stone carvings by Norman masons, ornate wood carvings, rood screens and the skill of the stained glass window designers. The churches also give an insight into the history of England, as most consist of an architectural mix of various centuries.
