Centenary of Norwich church’s rood screen celebrated
Dozens of people visited a Norwich church at the weekend to celebrate the centenary of its most famous feature.
Officials from St Mark's Church in Lakenham celebrated the 100th anniversary of the rood screen, which was designed by Temple Moore - an artist of national repute, known for his late Gothic Revival work.
The screen, which stretches across the whole of the nave of the church in Hall Road, depicts scenes from the life of Christ.
An open day was held on Saturday with a display of three of Moore's original drawings, church treasures, and a presentation on the history of the screen.
The Rev Erik West-Lindell said it had been a 'very successful' event with five different organists playing throughout the day at the 19th century church. He added that the rood screen was very well preserved for its age.
