Long Description:
Some 19th century bench end figures in the chancel of All Saints' church, Beyton. These are probably the work of Henry Ringham (visit link) .

The beautiful choir stalls show the fine craftsmanship of the late 15th century, and of 1884. The front seats and the bookrests are largely original and may have been part of the “stooling” for which the money (10 shillings) was left in 1480. These have beautifully traceried ends, with poppyheads, to which have been fixed carved figures to replace the lost mediaeval ones. The figure of a unicorn and one of a pelican are both ancient symbols of our Lord.
