Church of the Holy Trinity, Marcross: Chancel

Posted by
Philip (South Wales, United Kingdom) on 24 November 2009 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

The Chancel is the section of the church where the choir used to sit. It is separated from the nave by a step which is quite typical. The altar is usually at the eastern end of the chancel as it is here.

On the left you can see the Reredos. This tapestry normally stands, or is hung, behind the altar. In this case it is on the left due to the low window.

Tomorrow, we will look at the Norman Arch at the entrance to the Chancel.
