Study Day: Exploring the Heritage of St Michael and All Angels Church, Great Tew, 18 June 2016

The architectural historian Sir Nikolaus Pevsner described the village of Great Tew as ‘unforgettable’ and the same can be said of the parish church dedicated to St Michael and All Angels. Much of its medieval fabric remains including the shadows of a Passion cycle of wall paintings in the south aisle and the magnificent funerary brass to the county sheriff, John Wilcotes (d. 1422) and his first wife Alice in the chancel of the church. More recent features of interest include the 19th century sculptured effigy for Mary Anne Boulton (1834) in the north of the chancel.
