Nearer my God to Thee

Now here’s a triple-decker pulpit in all its glory! It’s in the parish church at St Martin’s near Chirk (but in Shropshire), which we visited while ancestor hunting during our summer holiday). I just love the children’s toys jostling at the pulpit’s feet; and when we called in we were not only shown in but welcomed at their coffee morning too. Well done that church – and no, I wasn’t in bishop kit so it was pure hospitality.

PS for those unfamiliar with these fine objects: the parish clerk read the service from the bottom desk, the scripture readings were given from the middle one, and the sermon preached from the top.
