In the 1960s this late Pre-Raphaelite mural was painted over in white due to damp problems, the difficulties posed by restoration, and the fashion in church decoration at the time. A successful Heritage Lottery Fund bid by the Hoylandswaine Arts Group means that the original mural can now be restored. At the launch event for this project held on 29th October 2011 the art historian and writer Simon Poe gave an overview of the artist and the significance of this particular work. This event was followed by a study day. Please follow the link for details of the study day.
