Landscapes with Churches – West Country Church Crawling with Mike Hope
The landscape of South-West England is particularly dominated by the inevitable presence of a church – its tower or spire. These buildings reflect not only national but also strong regional styles and influences. Aside from being spiritual and temporal powerhouses and hubs of their communities, their contents reflect the historical vicissitudes of local families and powerful dynasties alike. The course offers the opportunity to spend each day in wonderful landscapes visiting justifiably famous churches and a lot of the not-so- famous, often in incomparable settings.
