Matchstick church on display

The matchstick model of the Crooked Spire, constructed over a period of four months last winter by Ashley Haslam, and displayed in the Tourist Information Centre in February, is now on display in church, in front of the recently restored South Transept window. 

The display case enables visitors to get a close-up view, and appreciate the skill and patience that went into the project-and perhaps provides inspiration for others. Ashley had no training, and only started model building two years ago!

The model is now permanently displayed in the Ringing Room.
