by Michael Hodges
Published in December 2015, this book is the first comprehensive guide to the Anglican and catholic churches (outside the well-covered City of London) of Greater London.
It will encourage people to explore not only the better known churches, for instance of Kensington & Chelsea and Westminster, but also those lesser known gems of Camden, Croydon, Hackney, Tower Hamlets, etc.
The book covers each London borough in alphabetical order, with a brief introduction to its history, followed by a chronological gazetteer of first Anglican and then Catholic churches from the Middle Ages to the 20th century. It includes details on church architects, architecture, furnishings, monuments, stained glass, etc for over 420 churches.
Michael Hodges studied at Eton College and Balliol College, Oxford, before spending forty years as a banker focusing on the Middle East. He is a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries, a Deputy Lieutenant of Wiltshire and a trustee of the Wiltshire Historic Churches Trust.
