While travelling all over Britain on his pushbike, non-flying travel writer Dixe Wills is forever popping into old churches to look around, grab a moment of tranquility or just to shelter from the elements. Extending his love of all things tiny into yet another area, this book is his guide to 60 of the loveliest and most diminutive churches that Britain has to offer, many of which are known only to locals or tourists who are simply lucky enough to stumble across them. Representing a unique slice of British local history and attitudes, tiny churches are the great survivors of the world. Unlike grand cathedrals, they were built to serve more humble ends, but they withstood centuries of religious unrest (and the Victorian 'church improvers') to survive into this most irreligious of centuries. Today, scattered all over Britain, these atmospheric places retain the essence of what they were when the stonemasons, labourers, smiths, carpenters and glaziers were corralled together to build them.

This is a wonderful little book, I was intending to give it as a Christmas present but am sorely tempted to hold onto it. The presentation & the illustrations are of the highest quality and the text is a delight. It makes me happy just to hold it.

If you love churches, this book is a must

A brilliant book , giving enough information about each church without overwhelming the reader . I shall enjoy dipping into it when planning a journey to an area which contains one or more of the churches featured . A REALLY GOOD buy !!
