Ed Sheeran is hoping to build a burial chamber under the floor of the new church being constructed on his home grounds.

The Bad Habits singer, 30, is adding the unusual addition to his £3.7 million 'Sheeran-ville' estate in Suffolk.

According to the plans, the church will have a tower, eight pews, an altar, an upstairs gallery and stained-glass windows because why not?

It's said that planners agreed to the idea over two years ago, and Ed just submitted the amended plans to the local council.

His amended plans show the burial chamber within his church.

Drawings were sent to East Suffolk District Council in December, with it displaying the size of the crypt (2.7m by 1.8m).

“Burial zone beneath (penetration through slab)," the plans reportedly add.

The original planning application said that the church will be a private place of retreat for contemplation and prayer as well as for family milestones.

Ed and his wife Cherry Seaborn's estate is so large they could continuously build strange additions to the space.

It is already made up of five properties, as well as entertainment facilities for the family such as the treehouse, swimming pool and a private pub.

His construction plans and additions to his estate has been the topic of debate with locals and neighbours.

He previously discussed the lake on his property on The Hits Radio Breakfast Show last year.

Ed said: "Do you know the craziest [planning dispute] for me, is the lake that I had dug. Well, it's essentially a pond that is grey filled with tadpoles and swamp stuff – it's not a swimming pool, it's a lake… they make it look blue online like it does not look like that at all.

"There's no filter system, it's naturally cleaned itself with the plants that are in it. There's a big thing about like wildlife and newts."

He bought the 16th Century Wynneys farmhouse in June 2012 for £450,000 and has since added the Chestnuts bungalow for £525,000, Sunnyside house at £925,000, The Poplars for £875,000 and Wynneys hall at £895,000.

Ed skyrocket to fame in the early 2010s, and his success has put him as one of the highest-earning performers in the world with an estimated net worth of over £220m.
