St Andrew

Rood Screen – Photograph (PWDRO 116/37)

The photograph of a rood screen in PWDRO 116/37 is annotated ‘Moretenhemsteed?’ but it is in fact the rood screen at St Stephen’s Devonport in Plymouth. The screen at Moretonhampstead was designed by Walter E. Mills and installed in 1904 (Hardiman & Mortimer, undated). It is probably the work of Herbert Read of Exeter, the company that made the rood in 1934.
