Memorial Rails

The Memorial Rails which are placed between the chancel and the nave commemorate the fallen of the First World War. They are made from former altar rails from Semer workhouse in Suffolk.

The rails were refurbished in 2014  by church member James Taylor who generously donated his labour free-of-charge. The work involved re-making the damaged letters in lead, removing and replacing old varnish and shellac and repairing some of the fluting. The Friends paid for the cost of materials used.
