Priory Church of St Mary and St Michael – Great Malvern

Scott’s recommended work took place in 1860-4, costing over £1000. It was a conservative restoration, his main work being to replace the ceiling in the nave and restore the other painted ceilings, carried out by Clayton and Bell, and secure the central tower. The church was also repaved and partially refitted between 1863-4, with a carved oak pulpit. Fifteenth century tiles were also reset into chancel screen walls.
