This booklet offers brief biographies of the saints of the English calendar as well as suggestions of places to visit in connection with each saint and quotations from the saint's own writings. It combines familiar saints such as Thomas Beckett and Edward the Confessor with less familiar ones from the nation's history -- amoung them Wulstan, Alban, Etheldreda and Hilda.

Also included are brief biographies of the saints of Wales. These holy men and women remind us both of our rich native Christian heritage, and the Church in England's links with the wider Catholic church.

Focus points:
- Tells the story of the Saints who changed the island of England's history
- Short biographies of the Saints with quotes and recommended places to visit if in England.
- Explains historical evidence for many traditional English Saints.
