This overdoor carving is awaiting a door! Hoping to add more details about this detailed carving but here's a detailed photograph for now.
If you look through the wrought iron gates, you can just see the Baptistry's bright red ceiling. This commemorates the restoration of the church. Sadly no photograph of the ceiling since it was late in the day by this point.
Thanks to some recent additions, the High Altar is now high enough to completely hide the step-ladder that is needed to light the candles!
The Lady Chapel has become an increasingly important focal point in the church. The large paintings are restored copies. The wall they hang on is a new wall that was built when the chapel was mostly demolished to make way for a road that was never built! The remains of the mural...

An eastward looking view of the Nave towards the High Altar, showing the Sumner mural.
This corner of the Sanctuary has become home to rescued woodwork from closed local churches.
Is this the bony face of St Boniface? This reliquary preserves relics from several saints.
There is still much restoration to do at the St Agatha's altar!
A view of the altar towards the West of the church.
The stained glass in St Agatha's is displayed in beautifully backlit cabinets. The detail of these windows is astonishing - I believe this window came from a closed Carmelite convent in Chichester?
Chichester residents may recognise this bust of St Charles - it is a copy of the stone bust in the Cross in Chichester!
The St George altar at Easter. Two of the Stations of the Cross are visible, along with the intricate carved altar frontal.

This close-up of the carved St George altar frontal shows the staggering detail of the carvings. I am unsure which bishop is represented!
