Rood Screen - Wigan Parish Church - HDR


Rood Screen - Wigan Parish Church - HDR
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.

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?

A very intelligent and clever angle shot, the colours are adorable thankyou.
