Five hundred years ago all our churches were full of murals. Images such as the Doom, St Christopher and scenes from the life of Christ were universally used but many others were highly individual and site-specific. Painted using organic materials they faded quickly and were frequently over painted. Nearly all were lost at the Reformation by being lime washed over – and although a large number were rediscovered by the Victorians there are many still hidden. We will look at their history and spend a day out looking at the best examples in the area.
