St Paul, St Paul's Hill

St Paul, St Paul's Hill, Winchester, Hampshire SO22 5AB View on map

Decorated Gothic style church by John Colson with generous stone detailing and carved corbel heads. Designed by John Colson and built 1872 - 1910. An important feature of the church is the sgraffito mural decoration in the chancel, of 1904, by George Heywood Sumner. It consists of three large panels on the North and South walls of the chancel, depicting: the Good Samaritan, the Prodigal Son and the Parable of the Talents, surrounded by borders of vine ornament, which also continues in panels flanking the E window. The sgraffito murals were entirely covered in plaster in about 1962 and a small area is visible.
