Description

The cathedral in Norwich has 61 misericords dating from 1420, 1480, and the early 16th century, and some modern. This misericord is located in the twenty-sixth stall from the west in the sanctuary, on the north side. The scene depicted in this misericord resembles the Common Seal of the city of Norwich, made in 1404: the fortified walls and large central keep, and the raised portculis, all feature in the Common Seal. The misericord is supported on either side by a fanned leaf.
