Sedilia

Sedilia P21 t


In the south wall of the sanctuary there is a very beautiful three-stalled Sedilia, stepped up from west to east to conform to the steps of the ancient floor. The arches are moulded in trefoil form and rise from clustered shafts which divide the stalls. The most senior clergy sat in the highest seat and the most junior the lowest.
