Crowns with Leaves


An interesting discovery was made at St Nicolas Church when the 1881 wood panelling was removed to allow work on the walls near the Blacknall's monument.

Revealed was a wall painting of coronets with leaves. The question now is whether they should be covered up again or kept on permanent display. It is not known when they date from but they are old enough to matter to local historians.

Hmmm, I tried to leave a comment and it didn't go through! I love hearing about discoveries like this. The crowns are so pretty.
