A rare medieval church wall painting in Stratford upon Avon is now on view to the public for the first time, after a £100,000 Heritage Lottery Fund grant. The paintings were covered up during the Reformation by John Shakespeare, William Shakespeare's father. More on the opening here, and more photos of the painting, and others in the church, here.
