St. Mary de Crypt Church, Gloucester

This church was built in the 12th century and retains some of its original Norman features.

The reredos, from 1889, was designed by F.S. Waller and carved by H.C. Frith. The mosaic decoration was made by Salviati after cartoons by Nathaniel Hubert John (N.H.J.) Westlake.
