A guidebook offering a comprehensive look at Jewish heritage across England has just been published by English Heritage.

Jewish Heritage in England is a full colour book showcasing over 300 Jewish buildings and landmarks and has been published to coincide with the 350th anniversary of the Jewish return back to England.

The book aims to highlight some of the regions national treasures that people may not be aware of.

"The guidebook Jewish Heritage in England plays an important role in showing for the first time the magnificent contribution Jewish architecture has made to the nation's heritage," said Anthony Streeten, English Heritage Planning and Development Director for the East Midlands.

Guidebook author Dr Sharman Kadish added; "These buildings include some of the finest synagogues in Europe, especially precious because they escaped the ravages of the Second World War. They may sometimes be geographically isolated from today's thriving Jewish communities, but they still have great value, both spiritual and cultural, in providing Anglo-Jewry with a sense of history and identity."
