Acclaimed author and Architectural Editor of Country Life, John Goodall takes us on a journey exploring the richness of our parish churches.

The Churches Conservation Trust Annual Lecture 2018

Our historic churches are living repositories for a breathtaking array of artistic treasures. From painting to ironwork, sculpture to stained glass and furniture and architecture, their riches are as marvellous for their diversity as their quality. Collectively they constitute perhaps our single greatest national collection of the arts, much of it practically unknown in a popular sense. This illustrated talk will explore the richness of this outstanding inheritance and the challenges of preserving and conserving it for the future.

About the speaker

John Goodall is Architectural Editor of the weekly magazine Country Life and the author of several books, most recently Parish Church Treasures (2015). He is a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London, sits on the Fabric Advisory Committees of Salisbury Cathedral, St Albans Abbey, Westminster Cathedral and the Westminster Abbey Fabric Commission.

The biggest challenge we face is maintaining such a large physical collection of material within a historic building – believe it or not, there’s just not enough space for it all.
