Long Description:
A gilded oak reredos in the chancel of St Mary's church, Edith Weston. The central panel shows Christ in the act of benediction. It was designed by Mr. A. H. Skipworth (see (visit link) ), with panels by Sir George Frampton (see (visit link) ). A memorial to Rev. Charles Halford Lucas who rebuilt the chancel in 1865.

"The rebuilding of the chancel in 1865 was at the charges of the Rev. Charles Halford Lucas, rector, and is of a somewhat elaborate character with vaulted roof of Ketton stone. The ridge of the roof is considerably higher than that of the nave, and the quire aisles are under separate gabled roofs running north and south. Internally the walls are lined with ashlar, the eastern bay, or sanctuary, being arcaded with a series of pointed arches on banded shafts; three of the arches on the south side are recessed to form sedilia. In the west bay are wide arches opening to the aisle and vestry, the roofs of which are of wood. The east window is of three lights with geometrical tracery."
