England's Historic Churches by Train - a new book by Murray Naylor

Our very own Murray Naylor has written another book: 
 
ENGLAND’S HISTORIC CHURCHES BY
TRAIN

A COMPANION VOLUME TO ENGLAND’S CATHEDRALS BY TRAIN

MURRAY NAYLOR

Travelling across England this book selects thirty-two of our ancient churches,
relating their history and identifying those aspects which a visitor might overlook.
His journeys include the great medieval abbeys at Tewkesbury, Selby and
Hexham; the less well known priories at Cartmel and Great Malvern and other
grand churches severely reduced after the Dissolution of Henry VIII’s reign,
notably at Bridlington and Christchurch. He visits a church at Chesterfield where
the spire leans at a crooked angle and goes to Boston, where the church -
known as the Stump – was a starting point for many who emigrated to America
in the 17th Century.


     ISBN: 9781473871427 • RRP £25.00 • HARDBACK • 240 Pages     


In describing his journeys by train the author includes information apporopriate to
individual routes and incorporates topics of railway interest relevant to the
development and management of today’s railway systems.
He does so in a manner similar to that adopted in his previous books on
cathedrals.
