I know Mr Portillo is not everyone's cup of tea, but there was a good look round the Sandham Memorial Chapel and Stanley Spencer's murals in tonight's programme:

I think if you have access to SKY in some way - there is an interlude in this programme where the presenter, Gus Casely-Hayford, visits Sandham

It is a National Trust Property

 

Their website has details of the art

and a (too short) but good quality video on You Tube dating from 2014

Coming from Newbury and this just being down the road, it registered as probably my first “visit” to a WW1 memorial. Went there many times when at home, and now when visiting on an odd occasion if nearby. 
Well worth the visit if it open….Covid🤬

Ken,

 

Thank you so much for the link. In your private post the link didn't work, but here it does.

 

Some years ago there was an exhibition in Rotterdam with some of the Resurrection paintings. Impressive!

 

Cheers,

Fred
