Sir Stephen Glynne was one of the greatest church enthusiasts of his time, visiting over 5,500 churches in England and Wales, and making careful notes and sketches on their architecture, plans and furnishings. This volume contains architectural descriptions of 400 Yorkshire churches and abbeys compiled during many visits. Interesting in their own right, they also provide an extremely accurate and valuable record of the fabric and fittings before their removal in restoration or the total demolition of churches. An introduction places Sir Stephen’s life and work in a wider context of developing architectural and ritual scholarship.
