Romsey Abbey (interior)
Wall paintings (St Mary Chapel)
On the right wall in St Mary Chapel which is at the East end
of the building are some early 13th century wall paintings
which were uncovered in the early 1900’s.
They relate a story in four medallions which would have continued further eastwards
before the main part of the Lady Chapel was demolished.
They are now in poor condition.
