SKIRWITH Cumbria
St. John the Evangelist

Dart and Francis’ records give the following:

  • Apr 1919 - initial request for estimates for oak fittings, riddels, no.4 angels, altar and rails.
  • Dec 1919 - oak chapel altar - £25
  • May 1920 - oak riddels - £40 exclusive of angels (“no.4 angels” £8 extra each)
  • Jun 1920 - gilding
  • Dec 1922 - drawings returned of riddels for Skipworth (sic - undoubtedly meant to be Skirwith.)

Note also that there is a parclose screen in oak all around the chapel which to the observer bears the hallmarks of Fellowes Prynne’s work - but this has not been verified.
