St Nicholas' Church, Moreton
St Nicholas Church in Moreton was built in the Georgian Gothic style in 1776. It was later enlarged and then restored after extensive bomb damage in the Second World War. The church is unique in that it is the only one in the world to have engraved glass windows, rather than stained glassed. Designed by Sir Laurence Whistler, the windows were put in after the original ones were blown out in WWII.
Having seen the windows with our own eyes, we can honestly say they are breathtakingly beautiful, although our photos don't really do them justice! They also give the inside of the church a refreshingly light and airy feel, which is quite unique.
