Early Christian and Medieval Sites

These pictures form the nucleus of a body of work commissioned by Down County Museum. The resulting exhibition Power of Place, currently on display in the Museum, captures the hidden beauty of the ecclesiastical heritage of County Down.
The pictures also form the background to a large format travelling exhibition In the Footsteps of St Patrick first displayed in the St Patrick Centre in Downpatrick. The aim of this exhibition is to explore some of the local sites, monuments and archaeological discoveries which are linked to the early missionary work of St Patrick and his followers, and to his Early Christian legacy in County Down.

This High Cross once stood in the marketplace, a gathering place for people listening to travelling preachers, until it was broken during 17th c. It was repaired and moved to its present position near the Cathedral 1887 which stands on the site where St Colman built his first church.
