Description

The Holy Trinity Church has 28 misericords dating from the 15th century. Described by Pevsner as "most entertaining even if no great shakes as sculpture" they depict human figures, mythical beasts, and foliate motifs. The misericord in this photograph, on the north side of the chancel, depicts a bearded man wearing a headdress. It is supported on the left by a duck and on the right by an ostrich holding a horseshoe in its beak.
