Craswall church
This is the west end of the simple church. I can do no better than borrow the description given in Ray Jones picture SO2836 : Craswall church

Ray says "This fascinating medieval village church was constructed of the local sandstone in the 11th Century. It was rebuilt in the fourteenth Century, and since then has been used as a schoolroom and parts of the vestry for storing the locally produced wool. It is most notable for the amazing painted interior with designs of running foliage and flowers which have been carefully preserved over the centuries. An area of the churchyard has been set aside for centuries for playing traditional village games like fives and quoits. The church is dedicated to St. Mary."
