Now in its second edition and its fifth impression, The Church Explorer’s Handbook by Clive Fewins (Canterbury Press, 2005) is a 340 page fully–illustrated hardback designed to appeal to people who like to go out ‘in the field’ to explore churches, and also to guide those who would like to know more about the subject.

According to the Open Churches Trust – its aim is to keep as many parish churches as possible open for viewing in daylight hours – the appeal of British parish churches and cathedrals is so great that about 30 million people a year visit them. It is a hugely popular leisure time activity and this book is both an aid to pursuing this hobby and a source of information on 1,100 parish churches in England and Wales considered worth making a detour to visit.
