The Catholic Church of the Sacred Heart and St Catherine of Alexandria, located in Droitwich Spa, Worcestershire is a wonderful place of worship beautified by the remarkable mosaic interiors. The simple yet elegant brown brickwork exterior does little justice to the elaborate and intricate mosaic work adorning the interiors. The mosaic work was begun in 1921 and it took a humongous 12 year period to finish the same. Almost eight and a half tons of Venice imported glass fragments have been used to produce the ornate mosaic work in the equally treasured church.
