Acom­pan­ion vol­ume to Eng­land’s Cathe­drals by Train, this equally fine pub­li­ca­tion has a great deal to of­fer any itin­er­ant rail­way trav­eller or trans­port en­thu­si­ast in­ter­ested in ec­cle­si­as­ti­cal his­tory.

The 32 care­fully se­lected churches are cov­ered in 18 re­gional chap­ters, backed up by ex­cel­lent notes on both the rail­ways and on the his­tory and ar­chi­tec­ture of the churches them­selves. The photos also cover the rail­ways and the whole en­ter­prise is un­usual and sat­is­fy­ing. (214pp, hard­back)

St. An­drew’s Church, Cul­lomp­ton in Devon (see Eng­land’s His­toric Churches by Train).
