Medieval life, Myths and Beliefs

We have a splendid exhibition of photographs of the sixteenth century carvings on the chancel wagon roof. These fascinating carvings are extremely rare, some are possibly unique, and depict ordinary people, animals and mythical creatures.

The exhibition runs throughout August, September and October and is not to be missed.

Here are a few examples.

Sciapod

Sciapods were mythical men were said to live in hot climates, and used their single, oversized foot as a parasol.

Writers on mediaeval English churches claim that the church of Dennington St. Mary has the only known carving of this mythical bigfooted creature.

Donations will be used to support the soon to be launched toilet installation fund. Do pay a visit!
