A lovely typical English Country Church in the Spring, St Clarus, St Clear, Cornwall

An afternoon’s walk in the country, you come upon the typical village country church. This lecture will help you look at the architecture inside and out, the church furniture, those mysterious nooks and crannies, high and low. How and why did it all come to look this way? This is a fascinating journey through English history unravelled before your eyes. “I can’t make you experts” says Nicholas Henderson, “but I can teach you enough to amaze your friends on that afternoon in the countryside.”
