View from the Pulpit, All Saints Church

  • Description

    "The view from the triple decked canopied pulpit towards the north transept which served as a private pew for the Trotter family of nearby Skelton Castle. The transept contains a fireplace on the far wall for the benefit of the family and it is said that the fire was stoked noisily if the sermon went on too or became too boring. In the main body of the church the pews on the left faced east and those on the right west so that everyone could see the preacher. Many of the pews have locked gates and were dedicated to specific families." Photo by Mick Garratt, 2014.
