Artist's Description

St Mary’s Church, Langley Marish, Berks, UK

5 frame panorama each of 5 exposure HDR from single RAW file shot on a Canon EOS1000D and processed in PS8.

St Mary’s church dates from about 1150, and is the largest and most historic church in Langley. It benefited greatly from the expansion work of the Kedermister family in the 17th Century, which gave the church a tower and bells and also a unique library, which has not been changed since.

The nave was first built in about 1150, but was enlarged and much changed in the 14th century. The roof was reconstructed in 1983 following the line of the 14th century barrel vault.

On the left is the colonnade, a wooden roof support which allows access into the north aisle. This replaced the original stone arches just before the Civil War.

The Chancel screen is built of oak in the perpendicular style, containing some 15th century woodwork. It may have been reconstructed during the 19th century, when the crenulations of the cornice were added, possibly at the time when the original royal coat of arms, creed, ten commandments and the Lord’s prayer texts were removed.
