Carved roof timbers - St John's Church

Harry Hems' Exeter based firm was involved in the restoration of the church in 1874 under the overall supervision of the architect Sir George Scot. Earlier, Hems had made a practice of travelling around Devon to visit churches to make plaster castings of medieval wood carvings to use as a guide or template for his specialism of restoring old, damaged or missing medieval wood carvings. When the firm finally closed in 1937, Hems collection of over 400 items was acquired by the Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Exeter and a selection from that collection is on display at the museum.
