Church Recorders are now an independent charity: (churchrecordingsociety.org.uk) supported by individual societies of The Arts Society. King’s Lynn Church Recorders are celebrating their 20th church, when they present the record to the churchwarden at St Faith’s, Gaywood, King’s Lynn on Sunday, October 10th. An article in the Lynn News gave more details of their work. You can read it here.
The King’s Lynn Church Recorders, have spent the past two years compiling a fascinating and detailed record of the furnishings found inside St Faith’s Church at Gaywood, and the results of their findings, including two “star treasures” have been put together in a bound volume, which is divided into sections covering elements including memorials, metalwork,stonework, woodwork, textiles, paintings and windows. Each individual item is described, measured, and photographed. As much historical information that can be discovered is also included.
The “star treasures” are the two large so-called Armada paintings on the south aisle wall. These paintings, which underwent expert restoration a few years ago, have featured major exhibitions in this country and overseas, depict the visit by Queen Elizabeth 1 at Tilbury and the discovery of the infamous Gunpowder Plot.
