The Victorian Architect A.W.N.Pugin designed this gem of a church which opened in 1846 - St Giles RC Church in Cheadle, Staffordshire, UK. Every inch is covered in paint, carving or gilding. The detail is incredible. He is also responsible for many more Victorian buildings, including the inside of the Palace of Westminster (Houses of Parliament). Amazing to think he died in 1852 aged only 40 years of age!
