Riassunto: The Friends of Friendless Churches exist to save beautiful and historic places of worship from demolition or degradation. Founded in 1957 by the devout journalist and author Ivor Bulmer-Thomas, the Friends now own thirty-eight former places of worship, half in England, half in Wales, which they preserve, undertake repair on where necessary and make accessible as peaceful spaces to visitors and the local community. This book, with a Preface by Sir Simon Jenkins and a Foreword by HRH The Prince of Wales, details all thirty eight buildings, with photographs that touchingly record these former churches and celebrate the work of the Friends. Included are a short history of the Friends of Friendless Churches, a glossary of terms, and information on visiting the churches.
L'autore: Matthew Saunders is Hon Director of The Friends of Friendless Churches and Secretary of the kindred charity, the Ancient Monuments Society, having occupied those posts from 1993 and 1977 respectively. He is a former Secretary of the Joint Committee of the National Amenity Societies and will be a trustee of the Heritage Lottery Fund until the Nolan Rules oblige him to stand down in 2011. He has written and lectured extensively on historic buildings and was awarded the MBE for services to Architectural Conservation in 1998.
