Abbey Murals



If you follow my Exploration blog you will have seen I Visited a place called Lacock Abbey there I came across some old Murals which had been painted back in the middle ages. They had been uncovered during some resoration behind a bricked up arch. When I first saw the mural I could hardly make them out but after looking at the photos when I got home you could seem the paining more clearly

 The main paining which looks like a Bishop blessing somone

  6. It looks like leeching water has done the damage to this wall painting. Pity. Yet still entrancing. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
