St Mary and All Saints is the largest church in Derbyshire and was completed around 1360. It has earned the unusual nickname of ‘Crooked Spire’ due to the spire in question uncharacteristically leaning 9 feet to the west, as well as twisting round at its base. It is the county’s most well known landmark and is seen by thousands of visitors every day. The church is also noteable for its surviving stained glass windows, some of which date back to the Medieval period.
For this project we were given a unique challenge, something we really relish. Great British Lighting specially designed and created a large cross, made primarily of glass, with brass centre and end pieces. The entire structure is wired from top to bottom with dimmable LEDs in the 4 tubular glass sections. This fixture is one we always use as an example of how diverse we can be.
