Exploring Christian heritage

03 August 2012

A NEW website devoted to exploring England's "extensive and rich Christian heritage" has been launched.

The Discover Christian England website offers a county-by-county guide "to English Christian sites covering all periods from Roman times to the present day, embracing all traditions and denominations", a statement from the website's developers said.

It continues: "By means of clear travel details, including postcodes and Google maps . . . in many cases, the use of rotating pictures, each of the almost three thousand sites is brought to life.

"Cathedrals, abbeys, priories, friaries, convents, settlements, churches and chapels, places linked to prominent events in the emerging Christian saga, sites associated with the lives of eminent Christians, standing crosses, holy wells, tithe barns, and church houses are covered - in fact, any surviving features that have played a part in the English Christian story."

The website's developers hope that the website will "increase the potential" for England's Christian heritage "to be a source of endless pleasure".
