THE OWNER of any property, however small, in England and Wales can be liable to pay for repairs to the chancel of a nearby parish church, as a case taken to the House of Lords recently confirmed. Chancel Repair Liability: How to research it, by James Derriman, gives practical advice in a small book that is, say the publishers, the first of its kind.

It is not a legal textbook, but a guide to the task of researching what liability any piece of land bears; and, says Dr R. Sturt, diocesan registrar for Canterbury, in his foreword, it will be useful for PCCs and amateur historians, as well (Barrie Rose Law Publishers, Little London, Chichester, West Sussex PO19 1PG; £12).
