Arts and Crafts churches, chapels and meeting houses are found throughout Great Britain, that is, the mainland comprising England, Wales and Scotland. They were built where the combination of patron, architect and craftsmen coincided with the need for a new church building. This did not occur on the islands off Great Britain: Ireland, the Channel Islands, or the Isle of Man.


The maps below shows the locations of fifty of the most innovative churches and chapels', (and three that are not strictly total Arts and Crafts buildings but are in the spirit of the Arts and Crafts movement).

The London area is poorly represented for its population. Perhaps there were already enough buildings, or 'establishment' traditions were too strong to allow radically new ideas to be adopted. Rural areas are over-represented for their populations as a result of a small number of wealthy patrons who were able to realise their personal dreams.
