The English Parish Church: An Architectural and Social History Andrew Davies Wednesday 25 March 2020

We are fortunate indeed to have so many parish churches (aproximately17,000), all different and each with their own unique story to tell. We will explore their development both inside and out, glorying in our wool churches, commanding towers and spires and regional diversity. Churchyards, stained glass, doom paintings and errant clergymen all feature in this fully illustrated talk.

Andrew Davies is Extra-Mural Tutor for London, Essex and The Open University. He is the author of 9 books, including The East End Nobody Knows. He is a frequent contributor to radio and television and has lectured all over the world. He organises walks to complement his lectures.
