Royal Arms (Hanover). On N wall of nave, Hanoverian [1714-1801] Royal Arms on plaster; fragmentary surface colour but complete composition. Layout lines with compass and straight-edge; underpainting to strengthen colours. Bold green, strong red, otherwise tints of ochre. Variations from standard pattern; no border for Scotland, reversed lion; wrong colour harp-strings; wrong background for Lunenburgh, no hearts. Green for blue throughout [is this chemical change?]. [AJP DJR'75].
