Moving of Mediaeval Welsh Church results in discovery of Wall Murals and Paintings

There is an interesting story up today on the BBC about the period reconstruction of a medieval Welsh church to its form as it would have been in 1520: Archbishop opens medieval church.

The Church is now an Anglican church, but it has been given back its historic Catholic form and provides a further view into what parishes would have been like in mediaeval English Catholicism.

What is of particular interest to me are the paintings that were discovered during the dismantling process, at least some of which have had copies made of to adorn the structure.
