The profusion of medieval churches in Norfolk not only provides examples of beautiful church architecture, but also records life in their communities and offers an insight into the history of medieval England. Previously published as a three-volume series, this invaluable and straightforward guide to the living medieval churches of Norfolk has been re-written to help the visitor to understand both the general features and the unique of those in different areas. The guide is generously illustrated with new photographs, line drawings and a detailed map to aid in locating each church within the county. It also includes a substantial reference section in encyclopaedic form, designed to answer a host of questions which may tease the church visitor. For example, what symbols are used to represent particular saints? Why do so many Norfolk churches stand isolated from their villages? And why does the pagan Green Man find a place in our Christian churches? This book provides the answers to these and other questions. Written by enthusiasts for both the churches and the county in which they stand, the great appeal of this guide is that, once the code of church architecture has been broken and the language learned every church, be it ever so humble, is shown to be unique, with its own story to offer. This guide provides the key.
