Misericords...

The 14th and 15th century carved misericords at St. Laurence church, Ludlow.

For a parish church the grandeur of St. Laurence is remarkable - the stained glass windows are notable as are the carvings in the choir.

But back in medieval times Ludlow was a powerbase of the Mortimers, perhaps the most powerful family in the country and thence a royal stronghold. I guess it was seen fitting that the local church should be as grand as some cathedrals.

it always amazes me to see how silly people were in other times. makes it easier to endure today's utter madness.
