The picturesque English town would be nothing without its steeple, many of which are among the foremost architectural, artistic, and engineering achievements of the Middle Ages. Spanning 500 years, this sumptuous survey tours the 50 most important medieval parish church towers and spires in England, from Saxon churches like Earls Barton to those of almost cathedral proportions, namely Salle in Norfolk or St. James in Chipping Campden. The introduction provides an overview of the technological and aesthetic development of these steeples, while the 100 duotone photographs are wonderfully complemented by Julian Flannery's outstanding technical drawings of all 50 steeples.
