St John the Baptist Church 3D mosaic tour

On 6th August 2020 David Andrews, a Geospatial Survey Analyst, employed by Historic England arrived at St John’s. The mission of Historic England as a public body is to ‘help people care for, enjoy and celebrate England’s spectacular historic environment.’

This visit to St John’s to take a 3D laser scan of the mosaics was very much appreciated by the parish team especially as it was at the height of the pandemic in the town. The result of the 3D scan is truly extraordinary and I’m sure will encourage many people to visit the church in person to see a unique work of art. It is worth bearing in mind that the 3D image below was made before the mosaic was cleaned and restored by a team of heritage specialists from Gary Bricknell’s Mosaic Restoration Company, and it still looks amazing!
