We stopped on the way back to London at Rug Chapel, the private chapel of Colonel William Salesbury, the Governor of Denbigh Castle. It’s an astonishing and ecclesiastically extravagant display of carved and painted woodwork, dating from 1637, just before the Civil War.
This is the painted decoration on the roof trusses:-
The skeleton on the north wall:-
The wonderful painted candelabrum:-
Details of the painted decoration:-
And the carvings on the pew ends:-
