King’s Lynn – King’s Lynn Minster (Carved Screen)

This carved wooden chancel screen was originally made in 1584 and it’s another one of those marvels of history that it’s still here, although not in its original location within the church. I can’t find any actual evidence of this, but I assume that the chancel screen was built to replace the rood screen which would have been destroyed during the reformation.

The screen was “beautified” in 1621 and although its age is apparent from the design, it’s still in excellent condition.
