Bookmark in Spalding recommends I Never Knew That About England’s Country Churches, by Christopher Winn.

Bookmark in Spalding has chosen I Never Knew That About England’s Country Churches as its book of the week.

For instance, did you know that the Minster Church of St Mary at Stow in Lincolnshire has the tallest Saxon arches in Britain? Or that St Andrew’s Church Boynton in Yorkshire possesses the only lectern in the world supported by a turkey?

Discover hundreds of facts you never knew about England’s country churches with bestselling author Christopher Winn as he takes us on a fascinating journey across England in search of the hidden stories, forgotten pasts and secrets that lie within the nation’s country churches. Learn how the churches were host to some of the nation’s biggest events: the battles won and lost around them, the births – and deaths – of royalty, the legends laid to rest in their grounds, and the momentous historical changes that happened with church spires as their backdrop.

Illustrated throughout with pen and ink drawings, this book will have you saying time and time again, ‘I never knew that!’
