A fascinating example of wall painting in an old, well-preserved court house. Good presentation by the guide.

The painted room is on the upper floor of a 15th century timber framed council building in Church Lane. The entrance to see the room is round the back of the building in Church Street. The volunteer guides take you up a staircase to the room and explain its history. Admission is free (closed on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays) but donations are welcomed. The tudor frescos (from around 1560-70) were discovered during renovations thirty years ago. They are based on a tudor knot garden with texts taken fron english bibles. Parts are very well preserved, others less so because of 400 years of papering and painting over the original plaster.

Staff were very ready to talk visitors through the rooms and answer questions. The painted walls are fascinating and unusual.There is a feeling of timelessness to the exhibit. Even so, you do not need a long time to make this visit.

A short talk helps understand the building and the wall paintings. A wonderful find and gives a wonderful idea of what those up and coming Tudors wanted to show off in their homes. Make time to see it if you can. Need to go upstairs to view.

Near the Market Hall, this otherwise council building houses a fairly recently discovered secret - a painted room. The paintings which can be dated fairly precisely to a point in the 16th century. The guide was knowledgeable and helpful and genuinely interested in the subject at hand. It is free but donations are welcome. The paintings are of flowers and there are biblical quotes dotted around. All rather beautiful and in one of the oldest buildings in Ledbury. Well worth a visit.
