343 film negatives from Mrs Booty and 233 prints which can be found in the Red Box Collection. The majority of photographs show the exterior and interiors of churches around England, with special attention paid to finer examples of architectural styles and decoration, particularly from the Saxon and Norman period. A large portion is dedicated to church fonts, most of which date between the 11th and 15th centuries, and are good examples of Biblical decoration and medieval styles. Some of these examples include St Mary’s Church in Orchardleigh, Lullington, and All Saints Church in East Meon.
The collection also includes sites of castles and ruined abbeys, such as the ruined Rievaulx Abbey and Dunster Castle, in addition to small towns and villages with picturesque architectural diversity. These include villages like Selworthy and Great and Little Compton.
