There is a sedilla, a piscina, and a holy water stoup, but was there ever a rood and rood screen, and were there medieval paintings on the walls? Local historian Mike Allen has been researching some of the historical mysteries and curios at St Mary's church, North Mymms.


Mike's two documents, 'Medieval Mysteries' and 'Medieveal Curios' are embedded below. You are free to enlarge, download and print the features. If you reuse, please cite Mike Allen as the source.
