St. Thomas Church (Salisbury)

St. Thomas's is the main parish church of the excellent cathedral city of Salisbury in Wiltshire.

It dates back to the 13th century, and was built originally as a place of worship for the stonemasons who were working on Salisbury Cathedral.

The church was largely rebuilt, with a fine tower, in the 15th century.

The nave and the aisles are Perpendicular, with superb ceilings, especially that of the nave, which contains over a hundred angels.

But the main treasure of St. Thomas's is over the chancel arch. It is a complete Doom wall painting. Christ sits in judgement, with those bound for Heaven on the left, and those eternally damned on the right. The latter include a number of Bishops.
