The History Files The History Files needs your help

Last year our first donation drive was a complete success, thanks to some wonderful people who helped us gain a security certificate and meet some of the increasing web hosting costs. This year, that certificate needs to be renewed and another round of hosting costs need to be supplimented. As the History Files is a non-profit site it still needs your help. Please click anywhere inside this box to make a small donation via PayPal so that we can continue to provide highly detailed historical research on a fully secure site. If every visitor donated just a penny then we'd cover a year's running costs in a day! Your support is highly appreciated.

Introduction to the Churches of the British Isles

 

How to use the index

In this collection of photographs, text, and audio files, the English counties are grouped first into regions, and then are listed alphabetically.

The aim is to provide a tour which progressively leads across the country in an easily-followed trail, county by county.

The regions start with the capital and radiate outwards, as shown on the map below. Each section can be found in the main index in the same order as it is shown here. The other parts of the British Isles and Ireland follow on from this in alphabetical order.

The borders and county boundaries used are generally those as set in 2006, and which are reproduced in the Philip's Compact Atlas of Britain (3.3 miles to one inch), London 2006. Some updates to this format are applied when and where they become known and where possible, such as the 2019 changes to Dorset's country structure or the merging of two districts in Somerset.
