St Mary, Buttsbury Church - From the church's website (see Cover Sheet tab):
"In 1977, when the plaster ceiling in the nave was removed 
and the 15th century roof timbers were exposed, there were found two damaged 
pieces of boarding, on which there was some Mediaeval painting, dated as 
belonging to the first half of the 15th century."
