The collection comprises photographs, negatives, transparencies, slides and files compiled by architect and architectural photographer Christopher John Neale Dalton (1941-2008).

The collection relates primarily to churches and Dalton's work with the Redundant Churches Fund and Churches Conservation Trust. Occasional secular buildings such as railway stations, and country houses are also represented. Coverage is mainly English but there are images of buildings in Wales, Scotland, Gibraltar and Denmark. The images are mainly black and white and provide interior and exterior views.
