I'm grateful to a Facebook friend Julie Allsopp, who has recently taken the following photos of the once glorious conventual chapel of the Holy Name at Malvern Link in Worcestershire. This chapel, dating from 1893 is an early work by Bucknall and Comper. The community of the Holy Name moved to Derby in 1990 and the building has subsequently been used for other purposes. As you will see the Comper fittings are not in good condition. I understand that the building has been recently sold and is due to be converted into office space and the fittings restored. I do hope it happens.
The crucifixion that formed the top of the reredos, has been removed to admit a air conditioning unit.
Said air conditioning unit.
The painted ceiling is still in good condition
