The Misericords and history of Bodmin,  

St Petroc with St Leon.

Apart from three, from the 15th century the misericords at St Petroc’s are much earlier than the church and are no longer attached to the choir stalls.

The Lectern is made up from several misericords from the earlier church.

Corpus of misericords

L-01

Two gowned figures with flowing hair sit facing each other in earnest discussion. Each has the right hand raised and the left hand rests on a closed book on knee. Behind each figure is the more flatly carved shape of a battle axe head, but the significance is not apparent. The right hand of one of the figures has five fingers and a thumb.

L-02

Fruit similar to pomegranate, is fully opened, and is surrounded by flat ribbon foliage. A long, curled stalk ending in a knob or knot lies below.

L-03

Fruit similar to pomegranate, a long, curled pointed stalk is supported by two winged figures facing  outwards. They have arms and hands, but animal haunches and  hind feet with long tail curled between their legs. The figure on the left appears to have some object in its mouth.

History of St Petroc with St Leon’s church, Bodmin, Cornwall.

St Petroc’s is not only the largest, but one of the oldest parishes in Cornwall.  There has been a church on this site since about 540 AD, however, none of the earlier churches fabric survives in the present church.  The Current church was built between 1469 and 1472 in the Cornish Perpendicular style.  In 1699 lightening struck the spire and destroyed most of the roof.  During the 19th century the west wall was rebuilt during a partial restoration.
