One of the lovely things about going on holiday with Rachel is, she’s just the type who also enjoys visits to charming country churches and wandering around graveyards (not every 26 year old’s cup of tea, it must be admitted). Berwick Church was high on both our lists as it features breathtaking murals by Vanessa Bell, Duncan Grant and Quentin Bell. The initial work was carried out in 1941-42 by Vanessa and Duncan, and in 1943-44 further paintings were added by Duncan and Quentin. The beautiful results make the church worthy of pilgrimage for artistic, as well as religious, reasons. – Miranda
