St Martin's Church, Preston in Hertfordshire

Philip J Wray



This is another excellent book by Philip Wray, describing the history of this little church which was consecrated in 1900. The book starts of with a history of religious worship at Preston, including the former chapel at Minden (now in ruins) and non-conformist activity, including the Bunyan Chapel. It goes into more detail on the building of the church, its furnishing, and stained glass windows - all illustrated in colour. In recent years parishes have merged and from 2016 it will be part of the Hitchin team of churches. The book includes the early baptisms, marriages from 1909 to 2014, a list of burials together with a of the churchyard. It fact it is one of the best church guide books I have ever seen - and hopefully other churches will be upgrading this guide books to this standard.
