Description

Devonis churches are famous for their craftsmanship, particularly their wood carving; they also feature the finest collection of mediaeval screens. Devonis Churches includes double-page features on 80 major churches with 100 further churches listed in lesser detail.

In researching this book author John Lane and photographer Harland Walshaw visited well over 200 Devon churches, with John providing detailed descriptions and Harland the stunning black and white photographs of their detailsoeverything from bench ends to stained glass windows.

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.

The author, photographer, designer and publisher all live in Devon.
