Grade I listed, St Edith’s is a large priory church, with numerous renovations and refurbishments over its lifespan. The church measures around 110ft by 50ft (33m x 15m) and features a beautiful array of stained glass, as well as a superbly tiled floor.
The oldest section remaining is the porch; the original octagonal spire was blown down by strong winds on Christmas night in 1722. You can read more about the church’s history here.
The church tower
The church’s model tower stands at around 75cm, featuring a clock facing towards the village and the pinnacles, restored as part of the Heritage Lottery Funding grant awarded to St Edith’s.
The church itself has a varied mix of stained glass as some windows were damaged and replaced throughout the ages.
This looks particularly spectacular on a sunny day!
The nave of the church built in LEGO bricks is entirely self-supported as the real church is on, leaning on fourteen slender pillars.
The wooden arches supporting the beautiful nave roof are represented too, tying the two outer walls of the nave together.
Beautiful inside and out
The LEGO model is designed with an interior visible from the rear of the model via a cutaway section. The church’s interior features the altar, many pews, an organ, tombs, a font, and a statue of the bust of the church’s founder.
