Romney Marsh Churches


Romney Churches Mural.

Emily and Phillippa Goddard

  • Location: Church Road, New Romney, TN28 8EX (best viewed from the New Inn car park).
  • Commissioned by the IMOS Foundation.
  • Brief: To show-case the medieval churches of Romney Marsh by exploring their unique architectural features on 24 painted panels to be linked, visually, by using a selected palette of colours across the work.

Designed and painted in collaboration with Emily Goddard, this grouping of panels is mounted on the gable wall of private dwelling but was painted in the studio over a two-year period from 2012 to 2014
Fourteen larger panels show a major aspect or feature from each of the fourteen medieval churches of Romney Marsh whilst ten smaller panels look even closer at the small and delightful details that can be found by visitors.
Our challenge to you is to go and find out which bit comes from where. A copy of the answers is kept behind the bar at the New Inn.
