Get Me to the Church 4

Sword rests were another interesting detail that caught our attention in London churches. The one above is in St Margaret Pattens, and one below in St Mary Aldermary (both featured in the previous three blog entries). Of course, they don’t date from the times of mediaeval knights – they are for ceremonial swords, like when the Lord Mayor comes to church.
