St Andrew's church: Replica of Luttrell Psalter
The story of the Luttrell Psalter is well known, and is best described by the British Library where it now resides: (LinkExternal link )

This replica is here because the original was in the church until the 20th century
St Andrew's church, Irnham
Grade I listed.
A church has been on the same site in our Parish for approximately one thousand years. The present building dates from the late Norman period onwards. Heavily restored in 1858.
The history of St. Andrew’s is inextricably woven with that of the Luttrell family, who owned the village and adjoining Irnham Hall (through the female line) until 1853. The estate then passed briefly to the Woodhouse family and then to the Benton Jones family, the present owners.
Circa 1325, Sir Geoffrey Luttrell (1276-1345) commissioned the celebrated Luttrell Psalter, now in the British Library. He further commissioned the church’s rare Easter Sepulchre which is at the end of the north aisle (you pass by a particularly fine floor brass to Sir Andrew Luttrell, Sir Geoffrey’s son d.1390).
Sir Geoffrey succeeded to the family estates (including Irnham) in 1297, at about which time he married Agnes Sutton – a relative of Bishop Oliver Sutton of Lincoln (d 1299).
