“The remarkable decorative scheme in Berwick Church is of national and even international importance.”
Sir Nicholas Serota
We are saving our unique murals and peaceful location for future generations to come. Support us in conserving the largest paintings by the Bloomsbury Group and to invite you in to experience our beautiful setting.
The Bloomsbury paintings in Berwick Church – the only example of the complete decoration of the interior of an ancient rural parish church in the UK by 20th century artists – are seriously deteriorating. The ancient fabric of the church lacks the facilities to allow us to work with visiting groups and the environmental controls needed to protect these spectacular murals. Our project is to conserve the painted interior and undertake the extensive capital works to the church needed to stabilise and protect the paintings for future generations. Alongside this we will launch a varied programme of onsite and digital activities to widen our educational programmes which promote a better understanding of the relationship between faith and the arts.
