Wall paintings in St.Mary's nave

A 15th century wheel of life represents an analogy of man's changing fortunes and a metaphor about the transience of human life. In the window splays, a depiction of St.Anthony of the desert with a pig at his feet, patron Saint of domestic animals. On the right splay are the Archangel Michael weighing souls and the Virgin Mary pleading for them.
