Englands Thousand Best Churches by Simon JenkinsParish churches are Englands glory. They enshrine the history of a people-their art, architecture, and faith. As public monuments, they house a gallery of vernacular art, from different periods and in a wide range of styles, that are without equal in the world. Award-winning English journalist Simon Jenkins has traveled the length and breadth of England to select his thousand best churches. Each entry is prefaced by a map locating the church and illustrated with full-color photographs from the Country Life Archive. Organized by county, each church is described, often with delightful asides, and is given a star rating from one to five, with the four- and five-star churches listed as the hundred best. This complete guide is invaluable for anyone interested in touring Englands best churches.

Please let me know of any errors that you can spot, so that I can replace this with an improved version. And this is an attempt to map all the pictures that are geo-tagged and group those that seem to be of the same church.
