Speaking atThe Private Life of Britain’s Cathedrals
Christopher Somerville is the walking correspondent of The Times. He is one of Britain’s most respected and prolific travel writers, with forty-two books, hundreds of newspaper articles and many TV and radio appearances to his name.
Christopher is the author of the acclaimed 'The January Man' and walks across Britain again to tell the stories of his favourite cathedrals in 'Ships Of Heaven: The Private Life of Britain’s Cathedrals' not as a guidebook, but as a voyage of discovery across the ages. Meeting believers and non-believers, architects and archaeologists, the cleaner who dusts the monuments and the mason who judges stone by its taste, Chistopher delves deep into the private lives and the uncertain future of these ever-voyaging Ships of Heaven.
