A small rural church seats fewer than 50, with a nave no more than 30 feet long. All the churches and chapels included in the book are still in use and can be visited by the growing number of enthusiasts who seek them out to enjoy their beauty and historical associations. A church such as St Enodoc in Cornwall, where Sir John Betjeman is buried, or St John, Little Gidding, Huntingdonshire, are prime examples of the type of church to be chosen. This book is illustrated with photographs, line drawings, and engravings, and the text include anecdotes and notes on the locality featured.
