Salisbury, church St Thomas Becket Featured 30 Jun 2016 Print

Salisbury, church St Thomas Becket

St Thomas's Church was built around 1220 as a place of worship for the masons working on the nearby 13th-century Salisbury Cathedral. It was rebuilt around 1450 and bears the emblems of the townspeople who paid for it.
The church's most notable feature is the Last Judgment or "Doom" mural which fills the wall above the chancel arch. Pre-restoration drawings confirm that this composition is original and dates to 1475. The details are similar to other 15th-century murals. The colour has faded quite a bit but it still wonderful to see the mural after so many centuries.The mural was completed in 1475, but was painted over in 1593. It remained hidden until it was discovered and restored in 1881.
The nave and aisles of St. Thomas Church are in the Perpendicular style. The slim pillars are topped with foliated capitals. The clear glass windows overlook the market buildings outside and make the interior bright. The carved timber roof includes crested and painted beams and 250 angels in various locations
