Muchelney, St Peter and St Paul, Somerset, *

“Some time in the early 17th century the entire wagon roof was painted with blue panels, each containing its own angel, full face and scantily clad. Some of these are bare breasted, forming the only ‘topless’ ceiling in England. A celestial beauty contest appears to be in progress, crude, colourful and great fun.”
