St Crida

Creed Pulpit
Pulpit at Creed (PWDRO 244/5 with permission of Pinwill family)

Pulpit – Photograph (PWDRO 244/4 & 244/5) Plan (CRO X272/15/1); 1913

The photograph in PWDRO shows this piece prior to dispatch and it is merely annotated ‘Creed Ch Pulpit’. At CRO, however, there exists a plan by Violet Pinwill of the proposed pulpit. The finished piece is exquisitely carved and illustrates the skill of Violet Pinwill as a designer. A faculty for the pulpit was raised in June 1913 (Warner, 2022).
