Abbeys, cathedrals and sacred places

Man’s symbols of faith, from monasteries and churches to mosques, synagogues and temples, are part of the English landscape and offer oases of quiet contemplation, and intrigue. Centuries of history are beneath your feet and before your eyes at stone circles, crumbling abbey ruins, medieval chapels, ancient monoliths, holy wells and chambered tombs. Trace the history of our society through our holy places. Most were at one time the focal point of their community, be it a bustling city or a tiny rural village.
