The Pulpit at Bodelwyddan by 


St Margaret’s Church, Bodelwyddan, Wales

Bodelwyddan’s “Marble Church” is one of the best known and most spectacular churches in North Wales. It is dedicated to St. Margaret of Antioch.

The Pulpit has carvings representing, in five panels, Christ and Saints Matthew, Mark, Luke and John and these are supported by five figures of angels carved in relief. Thomas Earp, its creator was a Londoner who was apprenticed to a firm of wood carvers in the south-east of London in the 1840’s. Unfortunately, all records of his were lost in the bombings of the premises he originally founded. The pulpit was a gift of Emma and Harriet, two sisters of Lady Margaret Willoughby de Broke, who were very generous in their interest and support of the new parish church.

    A wonderful set of carvings! It is interesting to compare them with that I photographed recently in Papete, French Polynesia
    Although both are in wood, yours is more European rather that Polynesian (of course)!

  • Though stylistically and I would guess chronologically some distance apart, the uniting factor is in the skill of the carvers.
    Whenever I see work of this complexity I always imagine what it must be like for the craftsman as he nears the end of the project, one slip and …….yikes.
    And there’s no ‘undo’ button
