Description

St Bartholomew's Church has fifteen misericords dating from around 1410. This misericord is a rare example of a depiction of a Lily crucifix, an Anglican symbol which shows Christ crucified on a lily. It is suggested that the symbolism "is unlikely to have been understood by the carver", and therefore may not have been intended to be a religious symbol.
