Inside St Michael's Church, Urchfont (2)

Recent Photograph of Inside St Michael's Church (2) (Urchfont)

Two light windows in every second bay but what appears to be a 19th century window at the east end. The central bosses are carved with figures, including one of a mermaid holding a mirror, the side bosses are foliage, like the capitals of the chancel arch. It is a splendid quality piece and when built it must have been awesome. Today it appears a little too low when viewed from the nave, probably thanks to the latter receiving a clerestory later. Also some good monuments - one with “Mr Punch”), and you have enough to keep you entertained in this church for an hour or so!
