Nick Jones has kindly let me have a design based on some of the misericords at St Mary’s, Fairford

History of St Mary’s church, Fairford, Gloucestershire

Although a church has existed at the site of St Mary’s since at lease 1125, little of the earlier buildings still exist.  The current church was founded in the early 1490’s, retaining only the tower from the earlier church, by the local wool merchant John Tame.  In 1497, the new church was rededicated.


Over the next 15 to 20 years, the church was wreathed in some of the best medieval stained glass still extant, by the renowned glazier, Barnard Flower, whom Henry VIII employed to glaze the windows of King’s College Chapel in Cambridge and the Lady Chapel in Westminster Abbey.


The misericords do not co-ordinate with the style of the church, and show signs of having been dismantled and rebuilt, so it seems likely that they came from elsewhere, local legend has it that they originated in Cirencester Abbey.

Although St Mary’s does not have an official website, it is worth looking at  Fairford’s website.
