Photographs Of Parish Churches In Britain And Ireland

If you want to see what the parish church looked like that your ancestors attended in England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland, you can find over seventeen thousand wonderful photographs highlighting each church. The website is The Churches of Britain and Ireland

The photos are divided by each county in England, Scotland, the Channel Islands, Northern Ireland, and Wales, and then sub-divided by each parish.

So you will need to know which particular parish your ancestors attended, or of course, you could do what I like to do, and just pick a county and go through each of the parishes, one by one, and look at each church for their beauty alone. As I mentioned, there are thousands of individual pictures (usually only one of each church unfortunately).

If it is your intention to use any photographs from the website for any commercial enterprise, there are copywrite issues. You would need to contact the owner of the website, Steve Bulman at the following email address "steve at stevebulman.f9.co.uk" (the reason I used that as his email address is to avoid any spam being sent to Mr Bulman). He will then contact the owner of the photo himself.
