‘Let there Be Light’ is a project run by Pickering Parish Church that aims to better conserve, present and interpret our unique set of mediaeval wall paintings. We want to tell the story of these stunning products of mediaeval artistry and Victorian religious wrangling to new and wider audiences, broadening access to our church and the paintings within it through much-needed conservation work and sympathetic changes to the building.
On this page you can learn more about our exciting project, keep up to date by subscribing to our newsletter, make a donation to support our work, and find out more about the paintings themselves to understand why we want to promote and preserve this national treasure.
New Heritage Project page launched
In order to keep you up to date with developments on our Heritage Project, Pickering Parish Church has launched a new web page on our popular website. The new page can be accessed at pickeringchurch.com/wall-paintings, or by clicking on the new link on the home page or website header.
From that page, users will find the ability to subscribe to our new electronic mailing list, be able to donate towards our heritage project, and see close-up, high resolution images of our stunning collection of mediaeval wall paintings, which this project hopes to conserve, present and interpret to new and wider audiences.
For more information contact the Vicar, Fr Antony Pritchett, or subscribe to our mailing list on pickeringchurch.com/wall-paintings.
