Product description


'If there is one thing better than wandering around medieval churches on your own, it is doing so with a companion who is affable, knowledgeable, and interesting ... [Mortlock] has the engaging manner of a detective, piecing together the story of the building from the available evidence, describing the historical development and idiosyncratic features ... the beauty of this book is that it is written by an enthusiast. While there is no doubt about Mortlock's expertise, he is never formulaic; alongside the naming of furnishings and architectural features, his eloquent prose finds room for ... details which he happens to find interesting. Coming to a known church with Mortlock is like seeing it for the first time ... the articles are accurate ... Most importantly of all, Mortlock has an Anglican sensibility. He knows the true emotional value of the buildings he describes. There are few inaccuracies or omissions ... Mortlock's guide to Suffolk Churches remains the only complete and reliable guide to the churches of Suffolk in print. Even when Pevsner's revising editor has completed his work, this book will remain the definitive text on the subject for years to come.'
--Simon Knott in Ecclesiology Today vol. 44, January 2012
