1,000 churches


The full size version is here

There are parts of the country that I am unlikely ever to reach in my quest to cycle to some of England's 1,000 best churches. But for the sake of completeness I've been trying to plot the positions of all 1,000.

Above is the map as it currently stands. I can't see a similar list anywhere else (other than in the book itself) so I hope this is of some use to others.

There are bound to be some mistakes, so it's a good idea to check location before heading off for a visit. If you do spot a mistake, please let me know and I'll update it accordingly.

For those who are interested in this stuff, there's also a flickr group - here.

I'm using Jenkins' book a lot at the moment and so this will be really helpful. Thanks.

I was just wondering if you knew of anywhere where the 1000 were available as a list? Have you posted them yourself anywhere (as presumably you have them to have produced this plot)?

Many thanks,

Matthew Page

I've done various versions of the list, but not looked at them for a while. One of the more recent is here - https://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=http://www.reedhome.org.uk/Documents/KML/jkmlpublic.kml%3Freload%3Dyes&sll=53.800651,-4.064941&sspn=24.037263,39.506836&ie=UTF8&z=7

I can't vouch for the accuracy of all the locations, but I don't think it is bad on the whole.

Hi. Is this very helpful list available to download as a KML or GPX file anywhere?
