4.0 out of 5 stars Guide to Norfolk Churches, 9 July 2009

This review is from: The Guide to Norfolk Churches (Popular Guide) (Paperback)
This is an updated one volume version of Mr Mortlock's original 3 volume guide, which makes it a more convenient companion for visiting churches. I have found it useful (my main interest has been rood screens and wall paintings) but perhaps a more thorough revision of the contents would have been advisable. That aside, it makes a good companion to Pevsner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Must have text., 23 Aug 2010
This review is from: The Guide to Norfolk Churches (Popular Guide) (Paperback)
Inevitably specialist publications like this are going to be a little expensive and at over 20 this one certainly is, particularly with the paucity of pictures and in black & white too. However, this should not put anyone off interested in the subject as there is arguably no finer book on the subject available and it can be considered as currently the definitive text.

The addition of architectural time lines, a glossary of architectural terms (highlighted in the text) along with a guide to saints and there significance, makes it particularly useful for someone new to the subject. Inevitably space is limited because of the sheer numbers of churches that Norfolk enjoys, never the less I for one would be happy to see an expansion on what is here and would particularly enjoy a chapter that would act as both a primer on church architectural history as well as the historical, social and political context it occurred in. If not included in a single volume then acting as an accompanying text would suffice.

The inclusion of the glossary is such an important component of the book that this is another area of the book I would argue for expanding too. In all then one to highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars New,revised and brilliant!, 21 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Guide to Norfolk Churches (Popular Guide) (Paperback)
There were originally three books covering Norfolk. Two were easy to get but the third was almost unobtainable - which means expensive in the s/h bookshops.

This new edition is cheaper than the third old one, is updated and revised.

If you are interested in Norfolk churches this volume is a MUST.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Encyclopediac Reference, 21 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Guide to Norfolk Churches (Popular Guide) (Paperback)
Very helpful and thorough reference book with a good map and detailed descriptions. The one thing it lacks is a list of highlights -- say those ten or fifteen churches that the author deem special, but that sort of list should be easy to find on the web. I look forward to using it on an upcoming trip.
