St Raphaels Catholic Church, Millbrook - mural 1966
A mural depicting the miracle of the loaves and fishes. LinkExternal link The position of this mural can be seen in SD9800 : St Raphaels Catholic Church, Millbrook - exterior 1966, taken at the same time as this, but in SD9800 : St Raphaels Catholic Church, Millbrook, taken in 2007, it has been replaced by a geometric design.

This church was built in 1958. LinkExternal link This mural appears to have been painted on tiles rather than fired in as with maiolica. LinkExternal link In this image, eight years after the church opened, there appear to be bits of the paint flaking off. Clearly it got worse and they abandoned it altogether.
