The texts are written by leading design and architectures historians including Elain Harwood, Alan Powers and Clare Price.Beautiful photography throughout showcases the very best of British church design, whether it is the minimal symmetry of a timber-framed altar, or light streaming in through a multi-coloured stained glass panel.
