Heavenly constellations and beautiful stained glass

Built by S S Teulon in 1856-57, this striking, red-brick Victorian church is an extraordinary composition inside and out, which shows the architect at his most dramatic and original.

With its short but massive square tower and distinctive pyramid roof, the church sits squat below the high east bank of the River Trent.

The interior contains beautiful stained glass and an appealing painted ceiling above the altar of heavenly constellations.
