Bloomsbury Group at Berwick Church

Forgot my tripod and flash so used my Sony Experia Z2

Berwick Church is a Grade 1 listed building. It is built on what may well be a pre-Christian sacred site from which there are magnificent views of the South Downs.

The church is most well known for the extensive 20th Century murals which cover the nave walls, chancel arch, screen and pulpit.

These were painted during the Second World War by the Bloomsbury artists, Duncan Grant, Vanessa Bell and Quentin Bell.
Every year thousands of visitors who have visited Charleston Farmhouse – the home and country meeting place for the writers, painters and intellectuals known as the ‘Bloomsbury Group’ – take the opportunity to visit the wonderful murals painted at Berwick.
