The Choir Stalls were donated by Abbot Elyot around 1520. The Misericords, used
as supports by the Monks during long services, are underneath the seats. The monastery
was dissolved in 1539 and the the building became the Cathedral in 1542
Alan Rome, Architect for Bristol Cathedral asked me to repair the choir stalls
cresting above. Sections were missing all around the choir stalls. New elements pictured
bottom right were pieced in to restore the the missing parts. Pictured below the
top section restored .
The brass eagle lectern pictured right was slightly damaged in an accident and I
made some small repairs to it.
