Long Description:
Completed in 1979 by a Mr Fred Hall of Shipston on Stour, this is an exceptional example of a church model. It consists of around 250 000 wooden matchsticks, and has been completed in loving detail. As well as a very fine model of the church building itself, it also includes details from around the church grounds, from gravestones in the churchyard, to the lychgate at the western end and the little church cottage, and the nearby war memorial.

It is displayed in the church through the generosity of its maker.
