The Chancel Blog ~ A Visit from the V&A Museum

Tuesday, 18 December 2012

Dr Ayla Lepine from the Courtauld Institute paid us a return visit to show visitors from the V and A our Chancel.

On Thursday 6th December we were delighted to welcome back to St Mary Magdalene’s, Ayla Lepine, who brought  group of around 20 people from the Victoria and Albert Museum.

During her visit, our guests were given  tour of the Chancel by Ayla and Gordon, the Vicar, and were also introduced to the Butterfield Altar frontals and the Communion set given by Georgiana Twells when the church was built.

There is a Video of the proceedings, but it may take a while to download!
