Lancaster, St Mary, Lancashire, **

“Lancaster’s treasure is the set of choir stalls, with some of the most remarkable woodcarvings in the north of England…Set into their backs are modern tapestries, a drastic intrusion but one which works surprisingly well. They were designed by Guy Barton and worked by ladies of the paris in 1962-75. The soft reds, blues and gold in Gothic settings offer an excellent foil for the surrounding stalls.”
