Description:Lady Chapel decorated for the Harvest Festival. The quality of the painting in this part of the church is extremely high, although there is dispute over who carried out the work. According to Pevsner, Gerald Horsley was responsible for the Annunciation composition but in Dr. Gomme's opinion J. Edgar Platt carried out the work around the altar and on the roof.
