St Cuthbert's Church has eighteen misericords, thought to have been installed between 1406 and 1430. This misericord, the ninth from the east on the south side, depicts a crowned king holding a sceptres in each hand. On either side of this figure is a griffin, facing each other. The misericord is supported on either side by a triple-lobed leaf. It is suggested that this misericord may be a depiction of the Flight of Alexander the Great.
