Bakewell Church 4/7

The chancel in All Saints church is both large and very light and airy and was remodelled in the mid-1800’s. A new mosaic floor was laid, and a new high altar and reredos were installed. New woodwork was also added, including a screen and choir stalls. The stained glass throughout the church dates from the late nineteenth and earlier centuries.

What is the significance of the brass Eagle, Brian?
Brian Walbey: The brass eagle and stand is the lectern on which the Bible is placed, but with this one being so tall there is a low box for the readers to stand on.
This eagle is impressive Brian! What is it there for?

There is some serious brass work here Brian.

That is a very fine lectern, Brian
Brian Walbey: Indeed it is Lisl, and so tall that there is a little box for the readers to stand on.
I read the comments to find out about the brass eagle, which seems to be the main subj. I love the mosaic floor a whole lot.
Brian Walbey: It's a beautiful floor isn't it. The lectern must be one of the biggest I've seen I think.
The mosaic floor and the eagle lectern make a stunning front to the chancel Brian
Brian Walbey: That's what I though Janet, and what a large chancel it is for a country church.

The lectern is very striking. I've seen similar designs in other churches and have never stopped to consider the significance.
Brian Walbey: Yes it is a very fine one, and it is on show, sometimes they are tucked away almost out of sight.
The quality of this restoration suggests there was wealth around at the time Brian
Brian Walbey: I think you are probably right about that Bill, but doesn't that floor look good.
Rather nice and unusual carpets!
Brian Walbey: Tiled floor Tom that looks like a carpet.
wonderful composition Brian...
