For the modern visitor, parish churches are places of reverence, mystery and charm which stand as monuments to a bygone era of belief and ritual. This anthology comprises more than 90 poems on English churches by post-war poets such as Sir John Betjeman, Philip Larkin, Fleur Adcock and Simon Armitage. They are united by a mood of nostalgic yearning inspired by the buildings’ evocative architecture, their place in a changing physical landscape and their significance as sites of cultural memory.
