The Highworth Church Wall Painting Tracing – Wiltshire Heritage Museum

on January 17, 2012

The Highworth wall painting tracings (dating from the mid-nineteenth century) were re-discovered during recent refurbishment at Wiltshire Heritage Museum.  The most significant depicts St Eloy (also know as St Eligius).  Dr Ellie Pridgeon and Roger Rosewell spoke about the discovery of the tracings,  a talk which complements the publication of the article in Wiltshire Archaeological Magazine (2012) (with photography by Jo and Sam Hutchings).
