St John the Baptist's Church, Tideswell (Altar)

Recent Photograph of St John the Baptist's Church (Altar) (Tideswell)

My earliest memory of this church is of visiting as a child, and seeing two huge ‘candlesticks’ (about 6 feet tall) on either side of the altar. There have been times since when I've wondered whether I imagined them, but no, this photograph shows what I must have seen - two pillars containing statues on either side of the Altar.

The Tomb in the foreground belongs to Sir Sampson Meverell.
