Inside St Catherine's Church, Hoarwithy (2007)

Recent Photograph of Inside St Catherine's Church (2007) (Hoarwithy)

Inside is jaw-dropping, because within the east end of the church Seddon has created an almost Byzantine effect by introducing four piers with absurdly large carved capitals, to create a crossing and transepts effect. The east apse glistens with a golden mosaic fresco. In actuality the parts are ugly, but the sum of the parts is astounding, and quite unlike anything you would expect in the English countryside.
