Virtual Tour - The Benches

"Let everything that has breath praise the LORD."

Psalms 150:6

The benches in the nave date from the 15th century though they were repaired in 1886. The three front rows, on both sides, are almost completely new work made to match the old.

The figures on the armrests are of 1886. They include a variety of birds, animals and mythical beasts, also little men reading and at prayer. These figures were sometimes put in churches to illustrate the Bible verse above.
