John Betjeman on Churches Hardback
The best-loved of English poets, John Betjeman (1906-1984) was also a great champion of British heritage and his legacy lives on, not just in his poetry, but in his diaries, broadcasts and letters.
He famously campaigned to save many church buildings and his work encouraged a greater appreciation of overlooked Victorian churches and architects.
Illustrated with black and white photographs and accompanied by Glancey's amusing editorial notes, this is a beautiful book for enthusiasts of Betjeman, and people similarly passionate about conservation and restoration.
