Little Wilbraham: St John - carved musician
Little Wilbraham: St John - carved musician
According to the church guide book, "Standing in niches either side of the chancel arch and in the wall of the north-east corner of the north aisle are three wooden figures. They originally formed part of a group of ten, which in turn formed part of the lower beams of the mediaeval roof. Six of the original figures were sold to Anglesey Abbey and four to Saffron Walden Museum Society. Three of these latter have been loaned back to the church ... [The figure on the left of the chancel arch] has a cithole, a lute-like stringed instrument widely used in the 13th to 17th centuries and the ancestor of the modern guitar".
