Landscape of Towers

The explorer’s guide to the lost churches and religious ruins of Norfolk

'This is more than just a book. It is an invitation to go exploring across Norfolk to discover our rich history and it is absolutely brilliant. Wonderful words and magnificent photographs.' - Derek James, Eastern Daily Press


In a thousand years of history more than a thousand churches were erected in Norfolk, and 250 of those have either been left redundant or survive in various stages of ruination. This book celebrates in photographs and prose Norfolk’s ruined, redundant, lost, forgotten and remote churches in a county-wide record. Laid out in gazetteer style with accompanying maps, the book encourages readers to explore this rich aspect of our heritage.

Contents: Foreword by Edward Parnell; Preface; Introduction; The Ringing Island; Road to Ruin; Some notes on the Gazetteer; Divine Silence; Fallen Angels; Ghost Stones; references and two indexes.
