NOTES: Lambeth Palace dates back to the 13th century and has been altered and added to over the centuries. During 1828-1834 it was rebuilt and restored by Edward Blore. During the Second World War, it suffered extensive bomb damage and was subsequently restored by Seely & Paget, including the 13th century chapel seen here, which was restored in 1955. The ceiling paintings seen here, were commissioned in 1988. They are by Leonard Rosoman and illustrate the history of Christianity in England. See RIBA157610 for a colour version of this image.
