Some Old Devon Churches

Thursday 09 November 2017 at 06:12 am.

One hundred years ago Devon antiquarian and photographer John Stabb published a series of books on the best Devon churches and their treasures illustrated with 400 of his own photographs. The current set of volumes republishes Stabb's text and sets it alongside hundreds of stunning new colour photographs. Devon is famous for its magnificent mediaeval screens and these are illustrated alongside numerous other examples of Devonshire craftsmanship; imposing monuments, ancient fonts, spectacular stained glass, intricately carved woodwork, and the impressive architecture of the churches themselves, set in some of the best landscapes in England.
