Priory Stones

Paul Benjamin has undertaken the cataloguing of the carved masonry items currently stored in the cellar of Anne of Cleves Museum. It represents a wonderful collection of Romanesque architectural detail. Using the inventory previously compiled by Freda Anderson, several hundred items have been listed so far with photographs taken by Andy Gammon. The PowerPoint presentation emphasizes the Tournai marble sculptures that were located in the Lavatorium and Cloisters. They are a unique part of the Anne of Cleves collection and are of international importance.
