St Peter's Church, Rowlestone (The Swans)

Recent Photograph of St Peter's Church (The Swans) (Rowlestone)

One of two Candelabra - this one on the south wall of the Chancel. The candle brackets are believed to date from the 15th century, and are made of of wrought iron, comprising two horizontal bars divided into 5 compartments each with a candle holder. This one has decorations representing cockerels, the symbolism being of the Bible story told of Peter denying Jesus three times before the cock crows.
