My mum gave me this book for Christmas and I thought it might be vaguely interesting. I was wrong - it was very entertaining. I loved Dixe Wills' intelligent and comedic turn of phrase amid prose that showed a delight in architectural detail and historical asides. I look forward to finding some of these little gem churches across the British Isles.

This beautifully produced book is a pleasure to read. A subject which could be dry is treated lightly, in an entertaining manner. I was particularly pleased to find my own personal favourite, St. Oswald's at Widford, included in the book.

I received the book as a Goodreads giveaway.

Assuming for a moment that we are what we do, I’m an author and freelance non-flying travel journalist. I’ve written a number of genre-bending books and one or two that give librarians fewer dilemmas. My most recent work is Tiny Stations (AA) which is a journey through the penumbric world of Britain’s railway request stops. Prior to Tiny Stations, I penned Tiny Islands (AA) and Tiny Campsites (Pun ...more
