William Walter Wheatley, (1811 Bristol - 1885 Bath), was a prolific topographer and a drawing
master who lived in Frome, Rode and, from at least 1852, Bath. He painted in Somerset for
the most part and produced a series of 1,500 views of Somerset churches for the Rev. J.S.H.
Horner of Mells, as Braikenridge. He is said to have died in reduced circumstances. He was a
conscientious draughtsman - although his accuracy has been impugned - and a pleasing
one. He generally signed wth joined initials or initials and surname.
