Long Description:

Carved wooden angels, the work of Munro Cautley, in St Augustine's church, Harleston.

The rood screen is probably 14th century judging by the circular tracery in the upper lights, but beyond in the chancel, the woodwork is of a spectacularly high quality. In 1931 the church underwent a major reordering, and it is likely that the beautiful return stalls with their carved angels and the altar furnishings are to the design of the Diocesan Architect of the time, who happened to be Munro Cautley (visit link) .

The design is reminiscent of that in a High Church, full of prayer, with cassocked and surpliced choir singing the 'Nunc Dimittis' by candlelight. ♪ ♫ ♫
