Glimpse of Heaven: Catholic Churches of England and Wales

Christopher Martin

When Christopher Martin’s survey of Catholic churches A Glimpse of Heaven, with photography by Alex Ramsay, was published in 2006 it was a great and immediate success. It was “A revelation” according to both The Times and The Independent on Sunday, a “landmark” and “a pioneering survey”.

The architectural legacy is breathtaking ranging from the imperious Gothic of Pugin and the High Victorians to the Byzantine magnificence of Westminster Cathedral or from a simple village in Cumberland to the unflinching Modernism of Liverpool Cathedral. The story ends with a triumphant return to the Classical style at Brentwood Cathedral—the last important Catholic commission in Britain.
