Summary

In 1066 William the Conqueror defeated the Anglo-Saxon army and became King of England. This change in ruler brought with it a significant transformation of English society and this is reflected in the architecture of the time. Nowhere more visibly is this change reflected than in church architecture, particularly in the Canterbury diocese of East Kent, an area rich in parish churches of the Norman period. Richly illustrated with detailed plans, line-drawings, and photographs, this book traces not only the history and development of more than 120 churches in this diocese, but also tells the story of the Anglo-Norman families who patrons of these churches and paid for the building of these monuments.
