A WAR shrine dating back to the mid-1800s will be open for public viewing at a church in South Derbyshire.

St Peter and St Paul Catholic Church, in Swadlincote, will throw open its doors to show off features such as this as part of the national Heritage Open Days event which is taking place next month.

The event, running from 10am until 4.30pm on September 12, 13 and 14, will also offer people the chance to see the stained glass windows and clay figures depicting stations of the cross.
