Portable Easter SepulchreUntil recently we had no idea that St Mary’s in Upper Froyle had a portable Easter Sepulchre! Whilst preparing our Easter display for the Clive Barter Cabinet in the church we came across these photographs of it, taken in during a NADFAS survey taken between 1991 and 1993.

This was fortunate as the portable Easter Sepulchre was stolen in 1995 and never recovered.
