Stained Glass

Painton Cowen has photographed the Madley stained glass, published in his book "English Stained Glass", Thames & Hudson (2008). View pictures of this and other English churches on his website: http://www.therosewindow.com/pilot/Madley/Table.htm


Wall Paintings

High up, over the chancel arch, there are the remains of a painting done soon after the present nave was built - about 1300. There is a light on a timed switch on the North wall. There is also a board on the wall telling you more about the paintings, which were restored in 1992. In an age where very few could read, the pictures would tell a cartoon-like story of Jesus' passion, death and resurrection. Wall paintings of this age are very rare. You can see a photo of the medieval paintings on the Madley pictures page (link below). 

We also have on display a set of huge modern paintings by Ed Kelly, of the 6th century Saint Dubricius. Click the link below to see photos.
