St James's Church, Kinnersley (The Arcade)

Recent Photograph of St James's Church (The Arcade) (Kinnersley)

The pièce de resistance in this church is surely these exotic 19th century wall paintings, executed by the Rev. Frederick Andrews from designs by George Frederick Bodley.

Even Pevsner has some kind words for it - describing it as “exceedingly pretty”... wow!  It is certainly spectacular, so possibly this rather dark photograph doesn't quite do it justice, and one should see it for oneself.
