Phoebe Anna Traquair in Clayworth, Nottinghamshire

The artist Phoebe Anna Traquair (1852–1936) was born in Ireland and moved to Scotland after her marriage. She finished the mural paintings in the chancel at St Peter's, Clayworth, in 1905: they were a memorial to the Boer War, and were restored in 1996 by Elizabeth Hirst. I'll let the murals speak for themselves without comment, although there is obviously something really special here:

A view of the nave and chancel from the first floor, and many thanks again for making this shot possible.
