St William

This is the statue supported by the wall waif in yesterdays post. It is a 15th century wood carving thought to be of St William of York. It looks to have been laid face down for some time judging by the damage to the front of the carving. Wherever it was hidden it was kept  safe from the religious turmoils of the time and allowed it's survival into the present day.


  1. I'm glad it has been given a safe and prominent location now.

  2. Looks like William has seen better days. Given the age I guess it is not surprising.
