about

While traveling all over Britain on his pushbike, non-flying travel writer Dixe Wills is forever popping into old churches to look around, grab a moment of tranquility, or just to shelter from the elements. Extending his love of all things tiny into yet another area, this book is his guide to 60 of the loveliest and most diminutive churches that Britain has to offer, many of which are known only to locals or tourists who are simply lucky enough to stumble across them. Each church is so tiny that only about 30 people could fit comfortably inside, and each is open to the public. Representing a unique slice of British local history and attitudes, tiny churches are the great survivors of the world. Unlike grand cathedrals, they were built to serve more humble ends, but they withstood centuries of religious unrest (and the Victorian "church improvers") to survive into this most irreligious of centuries. Today, scattered all over Britain, these atmospheric places retain the essence of what they were when the stonemasons, laborers, smiths, carpenters, and glaziers were corralled together to build them.
Dixe Wills is author of numerous books, including our own At Night and the sister books in this series, Tiny Islands and Tiny Stations. A travel writer and journalist focusing on eco-friendly travel and the British Isles, he frequently contributes articles to the Guardian, Observer, The Ecologist, Countryfile Magazine, and Esquire.
