More Description

The ancient churches and cathedrals of England's towns and countryside are among the glories of our national heritage.Yet how were our ancestors able to construct these often substantial edifices without the benefit of modern techniques? In this unique guide, Geoffrey R. Sharpe brings forty years experience of caring for historic buildings to show us how, from the original planning and preparation to the final construction and decoration. In a final chapter, the author shows the reader how to assess the history and development of a church from the constructional and architectural clues contained within its features. The result is a work that adds a whole new dimension to our understanding of English church building and architecture.
