External Lime Finishes
The following examples posted here aim to show the extensive evidence of external plaster and limewash on medieval churches. In doing so I hope this helps to change perceptions as to what our churches should really look like as I believe we need to reinstate these traditional lime finishes if our medieval churches are to have a viable future going forwards.
An article, I have written this on subject, can be found in this year’s publication “Historic Churches” by Cathedral Publications.
