Description

Excerpt from Surrey Archaeological Collections Relating to the History and Antiquities of the County, 1874, Vol. 6 A review of what the Society has accomplished in the last few years assures the Council that this, their Eighteenth Annual Report, will be favourably received by the members. They have succeeded, by the publication of the second part, in completing the fifth volume of their Collections, ' which they trust will be considered not inferior to the preceding, nor unworthy the attention of its readers. In it will be found an illustration of one of those works of art now very rare in this country. Mediaeval frescoes, or wall-paintings, seldom escaped the destroying hand Of those engaged in the introduction of the Reformed religion. Fortunately, the interesting specimen in Chaldon Church was not obliterated, but only concealed from view by a covering of whitewash and the Council congratulate themselves on their successful efforts in restoring it, while the members are deeply indebted to the able pen of John Green Waller, Esq, for an elaborate paper on it, as well as on wall paintings in general. Although this Operation has proved a heavy tax on the finances, yet the Council are of opinion that the funds of the Society could not be more advantageously employed than in preserving a perfect record of so important an example of the religious art of our ancestors.
