The †13C limestone choir screen is a marvellous example of decorated Gothic architecture with pinnacles and arches with tiny carved animal heads.
The walls of the screen are covered with carvings of leaves and flowers. Traces of red and blue paint can still be seen on them.
Carved head of a tongue-puller journeyman in his leather cap.
I only wish I lived closer as I could spend many an hour focussing on the details of this screen.

Love Meg’s remarks! Mast of Horticulture, indeed 🙂 You do have infinite patience with the details, Jude. You’d better book a month in Florence!
Only a month???? 😉
