Little Tey wall paintings

During restorative work in the church in the 1980s some important wall paintings were spotted after some unsuitable 1960s paint began to peel off. These paintings were carefully uncovered and what remains of two schemes, dated to the 13th and 14th centuries, are now on display.

You can read about the paintings in the report by Tobit Curteis Associates and, below, you can see some of the paintings as photographed by Godfrey Bartlett and reproduced by permission from the wonderful website www.essexviews.uk
