The story of Clayton & Bell’s fresco decoration introduced with a video presentation by
Colin instigated and managed the restoration of previously hidden frescos inside St Leonard’s. Dating from 1864, the Victorian church is of national importance, reflected in the Grade 1 Listing. The magnificent decorative scheme was devised by the Reverend James Skinner, and executed by Clayton & Bell. The restoration has been executed by Donald Smith, a highly skilled craftsman.
