The Nave, St. Michael's Church, Mere, Wiltshire, England, Great Britain
Mere, Wiltshire.

A view of the nave showing the wooden Chancel Screen.

There is a rough stone wall on the tower facing into the nave which is pierced by an archway dating from 1450. It is thought that the rough wall was part of the original 11th century church.

An interesting feature is that when a clerestory was added in the 15th century only the windows on the south side have glass. The ones on the north side are filled with stone.

The Chancel Rood Screen, St. Michael's Church, Mere, Wiltshire, England, Great Britain
Mere, Wiltshire.

The Chancel Rood Screen showing a painted part of the nave ceiling. The red and green ceiling is a modern addition added to celebrate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee.

Looking carefully at the rood screen one can see traces of the original colouring.
