The history of Devon is told in its churches, including the chapels and aisles built by the wool trade. Church visiting takes you deep into the parts of rural Devon you might never otherwise visit, not only into the wilds of Exmoor and Dartmoor, but into the heart of rural East Devon, and deep into the banked lanes and steep river valleys. This is a pilgrimage through the landscape, as well as a guide to the churches. Devonis Churches gives advice about which churches are worth a special detour.
