The Romanesque Wall Paintings of All Saints’ church, Witley, Surrey


The paintings on the south wall of the nave of Witley Church are among the most important surviving Romanesque wall paintings in the South of England. Not only does an exceptionally large amount of painting survive at Witley, but the paintings are also very early (probably of the first third of the 12th century), and also include a great deal of very unusual subject-matter. The only other surviving Romanesque wall painting in Surrey of comparable importance is the much better-known painting at Chaldon. In this article the paintings are first described and analysed; then an account is given of the conservation work carried out in 1979-80; and this is followed by an outline of the conservation work which still needs to be undertaken.
