Description - Great Churches of the Northwest by

Twenty-five churches in Cumbria, Lancashire, Greater Manchester and Merseyside are here featured in a series of captivating photographic portraits by Matthew Byrne. The selection has been made on the basis of architectural distinction, beauty, quality of sculpture, carving or stained glass, historical interest or dramatic setting. The churches include remote medieval chapels, grand Victorian churches and modern city-centre landmarks in Manchester and Liverpool. Matthew Byrne's text displays a deep understanding and affection for church architecture, and his atmospheric photography captures the spirit of these unique buildings as architectural heritage, as historic monuments and as places of Christian devotion.
