Thanks for all the C&Cs on 'Most Beautiful' (Cartmel Priory).

This image shows two of the twenty-five 15th century misericords on the underside of the ledges or seats in the stalls of the main choir at Cartmel Priory.

Best wishes,
Philip

Good find and capture. Much more refined than today's graffiti.

They don't do graffiti with such style as they used to! Those letters are beautifully carved!

Raised in the Church of Scotland, so forgive my ignorance. What is a misericord?

Hello Ann,

A misericord is a ledge projecting from the underside of a hinged seat in a choir stall that, when the seat is turned up, gives support to someone standing. The ledges are often elaborately carved.

Excellently captured image, beautiful detail and colour. It's not easy without flash and tripod.. I wonder how you managed at such long exposure...great work.

Hi Jasmine,

The choir stalls had a convenient desk in front of them that made for a perfectly angled camera rest.
