* All Hallows parish church, Nottingham
A quaint little parish church. The site dates to at least the time of Domesday; however, the current church is late medieval in construction. There is a short description of the church's history and information about the parishioners' attempt to save its spire.

* Church Plans On-line [NetSERF Select]
"The Church Plans Online digitisation project is the culmination of a decade of research and work to make the ICBS archive more widely accessible. The project gives online access to the catalogue database and digitised images of the 13,000 plans in the archive." This site focuses exclusively on the British Isles, though it not specifically medieval. You can find plans for churches in many different ways. There is a simply search for finding places by county, diocese, by date, etc. There is also a more elaborate advanced search. A plugin is required to zoom in on the scanned plans.

* Lancashire Churches
This is an excellent site showing many beautiful churches throughout Lancashire. It does not claim to be exhaustive or even show the more popular ones, but those it does highlight are quite nice examples of the various architectural styles. Each church has a number of pictures with a very good description. The site also contains a bilbliography and glossary of architectural terms.

* Stave Church: Medieval Wooden Churches in Norway
A very good site on this topic. There are articles and a bibliography, but what is most impressive is the repository of information about the individual stave churches. You can view the floor plans and lots of other information. Unfortunately, much of this information is available only in Norwegian.
