St Mary's Church, Bicton, Devon

On a smaller scale than Parliament, another building development at the same time also incorporated a series of carvings of the monarchs of England. St Mary's Church, at Bicton in Devon was built to replace the original medieval church by Lady Rolle, as a monument to her husband, and it was consecrated in 1850.
The chosen architect was J. Hayward, a pioneer of the Ecclesiological Movement, which combined gothic style with high symbolism for all the elements of church design. It was particularly fashionable in the High Anglican Church.
