Simon Jenkins has travelled the length and breadth of England to select his thousand best churches. Organised by county, each church is described - often with delightful asides - and given a star-rating from one to five.
All of the county sections are prefaced by a map locating each church, and lavishly illustrated with colour photos from the Country Life archive.
Jenkins contends that these churches house a gallery of vernacular art without equal in the world.
Here, he brings that museum to public attention.
