The work on the painting was started on 19 April 1993 and completed on 17 June 1993 by David Perry. Sited on the north wall of the Quire at the west end, the painted area is roughly rectangular and measures approximately 178cm x 72cm. This shape corresponds to the pulpit which was removed in 1835 thereby revealing the painting. The wall around the pulpit had been disastrously stripped bare causing the loss of nearly 50% of the painting.
