The Abbey Habit: The Scots Whay Hae! Podcast Talks To Peter Ross...



For the latest SWH! podcast Ali was joined once again by writer and journalist Peter Ross to talk about his latest book Steeple Chasing: Around Britain By Church.


Peter talked about why he wanted to write it, the relationship to his previous publication A Tomb With A View, the structure of the book, how churches engage with the senses, the future of these buildings, church art, why it is in the interaction between people and place where the stories emerge, and much more.

The two also discuss their own relationships with churches, particularly early experiences, as well as the welcome renaissance of print in both books and magazines.


Peter is one of the finest writers around, with Steeple 'Chasing possibly his best book yet, and it was a pleasure to talk to him about it.


Steeple Chasing: Around Britain By Church is published by Headline Publishing
