Rood Screen - Wigan Parish Church - HDR
 Rood Screen - Wigan Parish Church - HDR   by Andrew Fishburn  (Canon EOS 6D)
The word is derived from the Saxon word rood or rode, meaning cross, which was mounted on the top of the screen. Wigan's rood was removed many years ago and now sits under the tower, albeit undecorated, unlike the screen.

Very innovative , I've been to The Parish Church countless times and never really appreciated the beauty of the screen,I shall see it with different eyes in future.

WOW ! I don't use that word very often being a lady of mature years but this photo deserves it, wonderful !

Absolutely stunning colours, you have an incredible eye for beauty Andrew, I love it. The colours in the glass windows is phenomenal.

Lovely, unusual angle of just a part of the splendour of All Saints following Canon Malcolm Forrest's work on the decorations.
I think of him and this handiwork when I look up at the unadorned ancient woodwork in the roof of St Wilfrid's at Standish and wonder - what was this roof like before Malcolm's time? Did he just have older paintwork brightened up, or had it been unpainted before?


Comment by Garry's Partner. on 11th February 2014 at 09:11
A very intelligent and clever angle shot, the colours are adorable thankyou.

It was not very far from this screen where I cried all the time when being christened at the font in 1928!
