Christmas Tree Festival

We popped in to see the Christmas tree festival and received the warm welcome we might expect from such a lovely community church. It is such a lovely church to visit

brilliant murals
Apr 2019 • Couples
Absolutely amazing. What a fantastic set of murals in this quaint little church which just looks like any other church until you get inside. These murals are unbelievable how they have been done and is a must see.

Murals Visit
Jan 2019
I went with my friend to his job in Kirton-in-Lindsay while on holiday in the East Midlands of UK. We went to Clayworth where we stopped at the 12th century St. Peter’s Church to look at the Traquair murals. Part of the church was painted by Phoebe Anna Traquair (1852 – 1936). This is the largest single work of art in east England. We bought postcards using the honesty box at the door. We admired the stained glass windows and furnishings. It is really worth a visit and breathtaking to see the murals.
P.S. In Hibaldstow there was a field of woolly long horned cows where we stopped for photos. What a beautiful sight.

Early 20th century murals in ancient small church
Feb 2018 • Couples
Worth a visit if you are a real fan of Traquair's paintings or enjoy looking at Medieval village churches and are passing nearby. The church is small and has some information about Traquair. The murals have had some sympathetic restoration. They are colourful and may seem out of character with what we have come to expect church interiors are supposed to look like. But of course, church walls used to be colourfully painted before the Reformation.
We spent less than half an hour here.

A Glimpse into the Past
Feb 2018 • Couples
Although the beautiful Traquair Murals are not that old, early 20th Century, they do offer an insight into just how colourful English Churches would have been, pre Reformation, when Murals were a regular feature to help the illiterate understand the teachings of the church. These are beautiful and precious examples of a time long ago.
The church also has a very lovely plasterwork Tudor tomb of Sir Humphrey Fitzwilliam, some fine memorials and lovely stained glass.
The church has a very well maintained loo inside for visitors, and raises funds through book sales.

Beautiful Traquair Murals
Feb 2017 • Solo
From the outside this church may look like just another rather pretty parish church but when you get inside you are in for a delightful surprise. The murals are really beautiful and the church is very active in the local community. You are sure to get a friendly welcome here

A NICE SURPRISE
Jan 2016 • Couples
We found this "Little Nugget" by accident and what a surprise it was. Inside the church was the TRAQUAIR MURALS which are painted on the walls around the chancel. Also there is the story of Phoebe Anna Traquair the artist, and the paintings are fabulous. this church is well worth a visit and afterwards o to the Blacksmiths down the road for something to eat and again be very surprised with the facilities.
