St. Thomas's Church and the Doom Painting

St Thomas Square, Salisbury SP1 1BA, UK

St. Thomas's Church and the Doom Painting

The Church of St. Thomas was originally built for the workers on Salisbury Cathedral, and it contains a Doom Painting - the largest and best preserved in the UK. Painted around 1470, it was covered with lime whitewash during the Reformation and not seen again until 1819. Now following its most recent restoration in 2019, it is back to its vibrant, detailed glory and is essential viewing for anyone visiting Salisbury.
