15th C misericord in The Choir, Hexham Abbey
Misericords are hinged seats with small ledges on the underside that when turned up gave support to elderly or infirm canons obliged to stand for the greater part of long services. The 15th C craftsmen decorated the upturned seats with subjects from biblical stories, legends and contemporary life. {Source: Hexham Abbey Guide p19.}
