Model of St George's finds its way home to Toddington from Stratford-upon-Avon
This stunning model of St George of England Church, Toddington was created by artist Ray Phillips in 1997.
It shows beautifully the church in its glory standing proud as it has done for many centuries. It took Ray 250 hours to create the model and has been made entirely out of used wood.
Further pictures of the model are available by clicking here
