Cultural Writing. Art. Architecture. History. AMBERLEY CHURCH is an important study of the nine-hundred-year-old St Michael's Church in the beautiful Sussex village of Amberley, England. The church adjoins the world-famous castle, now a hotel. The nave is Norman; the chancel, south aisle and west tower are Early English. Artists have long settled in Amberley, and this accounts for the church's richness in decorative features. The church's medieval murals are the most celebrated. Author Nigel Foxell has taught English literature at Long Island University and worked at the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. Foxell won the Laurence Binyon Prize, which enabled him to study works of art and architecture in Italy.
Nigel Foxell was born in London on July 22, 1931. Foxell is the author of five novels, poetry and Sardinia without Lawrence. His other Menard Press book, still in print, is the longest guide to a village church: AMBERLEY CHURCH: A CRITICAL APPRECIATION (2005).Author City: USA
