If you look up in St Nicholas’ Chapel, Kings Lynn, Norfolk, the largest chapel in England, you will see some of the most beautifully craved angels in the chapel’s 15th century roof, that have greeted visitors for the last 600 years, We dropped in a few weeks ago, well it was more like the chapel was open, and even if I have visited a trillion times, it would have to be a trillion and one times. It’s such a beautiful building and the angels hold a total fascination for me, well all roof angels do. So it was a quick point with camera and then back to shopping, and yes, the camera even comes shopping, well you never know….
What I like about these angels, are their shadows on the roof, some look like crosses, beautiful 🙂
One holds a recorder – the earliest ever portrayal of the instrument in church carving.
The angel below is holding tools, you can see large nails and a hammer.
