Inside St Mary de Crypt's Church, Gloucester

Recent Photograph of Inside St Mary de Crypt's Church (Gloucester)

The church was open (but if closed the Tourist Information nearby has the key). Inside the crossing has a lierne vault but is otherwise tall and narrow in the nave and chancel. It contains some notable memorials and some rich decoration (e.g. the sedilia and large image niches flanking the east window, both contrasting with the High Victorian reredos.)

Also of note are the tall four-light east window, and an interesting copy of medieval figures from Drayton Beauchamp in Buckinghamshire.
