The most recent edition of The Cathedrals of England brings to a new generation the classic 1930s Batsford guide to England’s religious architecture. Concisely written and speaking to a broad readership, the book serves as a practical guide today as it did almost a century ago, acting as a reference catalogue for every Church of England cathedral in the country at the time. This time with a foreword by Simon Jenkins, the newly reissued guide provides brief accounts for more than thirty English cathedrals and parish churches. For each edifice, the book presents a succinct description and historical facts, together with plans, photographs and line drawings. The list of buildings featured in the publication includes Westminster Abbey, as well as the cathedrals in York, Canterbury, Durham, and Oxford.
