Blyth, St Mary and St Martin, Nottinghamshire, ***

“Blyth is the kind of place to which a D. H. Lawrence hero might take a girl to terrify her with tales of damnation.”

From “one of the largest and most complete medieval murals in the country…the dead rise from coffins, naked except for the crown worn by a king.

A screen panel of St. Agatha, a martyr whose breasts were cut off.
