Art teacher aims to paint over 300 Leicestershire churches
An art teacher has said she aims to paint all 310 of the churches in her local diocese to raise awareness of their beauty.
Hayley Fern began capturing the churches across Leicestershire in watercolour during the school holidays last year.
Since then, she has painted pictures of 56 of the buildings.
"A few people have suggested that it might become a book, which would be absolutely amazing," she said.
Mrs Fern, 48, from Hugglescote, said: "I started off just drawing my local church, and then I drew the cathedral.
"It was part of embracing the local area, raising awareness of the beautiful churches, and it just became a lovely way of talking to people and meeting people."
