FCC Visitors Guide
The Visitor's Guide to the City of London Churches
Tony Tucker, £10 paperback, postage & packing £1.65

This authoritative pocket guide describes the 40 historic Anglican churches still flourishing within the ancient City of London, as well as seven of other denominations, and seven towers and two ruins which mark churches lost to wartime bombing and urban redevelopment. This invaluable guide includes a brief historical overview, a map and foreword by Sir Simon Jenkins. The uniform layout describes each of the principal churches in a two-page spread, with key points on the architecture, interior and history of each. With meticulous research by City Guide Tony Tucker, this updated third edition is the most reliable handbook available on the City churches, packed with information and illustrated with full-colour photographs throughout.

FCC Sword Rests

Sword Rests of the City
Tony Tucker, £10 paperback, postage & packing £1.65

Sword rests are a unique symbol of wealth and power found in 26 historic churches within the City of London, where they are designed to hold the Lord Mayor’s ceremonial sword prominently in view during official visits. Altogether, 58 survive in London churches, livery company halls and museums, far more than the rest of the country put together. City Guide Tony Tucker has researched and photographed every one, building on the work of the late Clifford Bamfield. This 64-page guide, richly illustrated with full-page colour photographs, describes each of the London sword rests and identifies the institutions and individuals whose arms form the principal decoration of each unique piece.
