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.
