The Digital Atlas of England

on September 4, 2012

Directed by renowned photographer C. B. Newham, The Digital Atlas of England was established in November 2006 to photographically record England’s ecclesiastical architecture and artistic heritage.  Cameron (who is also a Council member for the Church Monuments Society) focuses specifically on English villages and towns, and his project includes both pre and post-Reformation wall painting (as well as hatchments, royal arms, west end galleries, pre-1800 pulpits and seating, and all pre-1800 and notable 19th century stained-glass).  Regular Twitter feeds and blog entries (with selected photographs) also make the project accessible to a wider audience.

Many of the digital images are accessible through The Digital Atlas of England Photographic Library, a searchable online database of over 50,000 photographs, available to subscribers for a reasonable fee.  These high-quality, professional images are an invaluable resource for wall painting enthusiasts and researchers alike.
