Chairs for church

"The church has a well-proportioned interior. The nave is covered by a magnificent hammer beam and arch braced low pitched roof. The wooden carved figures with their ermine collars are holding symbols of the church’s worship and sacraments. These figures were re-painted by the daughters of Reverend Henry Downton in 1879, using boson’s chairs to reach such heights. Perhaps the carved figures represent local ‘townsmen’ who paid handsomely for such a fine clerestory using expensive Tudor brick. They fared better than the angels sitting on the wall post[s] which were mutilated and made headless in the Cromwellian period." –from the church guide booklet

Church furniture

The furniture varies in age, but most of the pews benches and ends are of unstained weathered oak. The poppyhead bench ends are 15th C. "The roof is supported by king-posts which rest upon tiebeams. These may date back to the 14th century, as do several roofs in this part of Suffolk. The floor is paved with quarry tiles and numerous burial slabs." –The church guide (Roy Tricker, 1996)

Church names
Image by Jim Linwood
St Peter’s Church is a Church of England parish church in Bournemouth in the English county of Dorset (formerly in Hampshire). It was designed by G.E. Street, who later designed the Royal Courts of Justice in The Strand in Westminster, and was constructed between 1844 and 1879. The original church of Bournemouth was considered an ugly building and G.E. Street was asked by Reverend Morden Bennett to create a finer church to match the beauty of the town. The church was named the founding mother church of Bournemouth. It has unusual paintings, stunning stained glass and some of the best examples of alabaster anywhere to be seen.

Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, the creator of Frankenstein, is buried in the graveyard together with the heart of her husband, Percy Bysshe Shelley.
