Piccotts End Wall Paintings, Hemel Hempstead

The Grade I Listed 15th Century cottages at Piccotts End, just outside Hemel Hempstead, house unique and historic wall paintings whose fascinating story lay hidden for over five hundred years.

In a row of 15th century timber-framed cottages, set back from the road at Piccotts End, seven colourful panels with religious themes still exist, more than 500 years since they were first painted. The artists are unknown, as are the reasons for their existence.

(Privately owned building, very limited public access. Normally restricted by owners to Heritage Open day event in September).
