The local church is a familiar landmark in every town, city and village.
The story of its past is the story of the people for whom, down the centuries, it was the center of the community.
But how many people actually understand the reason for it being built in a particular place, how it was constructed, or why it was decorated in such a style?
Discovering the information can sometimes be difficult but this new book places the period styles of church fabric and decoration into an easy to read form that is packed with photographs, pictures and diagrams.
Trevor Yorke's simple but graphic approach will be welcomed by all for whom a visit to a church is also a brief journey through time itself
