Medieval Woodworking Craftsmen


The benefactors of our Medieval churches must have employed the very best craftsmen that money could buy. Whether you are looking at bench ends, pulpits, ornate timbered roofs, seats or doors they are all works of art

For example this is one Stall End in Blythburgh Church, imagine cutting this out in relief 500 years ago, no Black and Decker or Bosch electric tools then. St Philip with three loaves of bread, imagine a mistake when working on such a masterpiece
