The other night, when I was trying to decide to write about, a couple of things were rolling around my mind. I started to write a post about a new book, published in the UK, called Wales' 1000 Best Churches, Castles and Houses, but I couldn't find much information about it.
That book got me thinking about another book by the same author, Sir Simon Jenkins, author, columnist and President of the National Trust in the UK. He wrote a book called England's 1000 Best Churches, which set out to find the best churches in England, listed by county, and England's 1000 Best Houses a celebration of English life and heritage.I didn't have a copy of the churches book, but it was on the list of books that I am looking for. Then I stopped by Daedalus Books and happened to check out the travel section and found it! This is a corbel from my favourite church, the tiny Kilpeck church on the Welsh Borders, dating from 1140 a.d.
I am looking forward to going through the 1000 Best Churches and seeing which ones I've visited. Can you tell that I like to make lists and check things off?
