Tim Porter explores the great legacy of medieval craftsmanship. Under choir stalls and lost in dusty corners, the work of woodcarvers survives in scores of medieval churches. Sometimes a towering rood screen will give their work context, but more often it’s a matter of eloquent fragments, worn by centuries of human touch.
