True's Yard Museum, King's Lynn.

The model building nearest the camera is a representation of the Greyfriars Franscican Monastery, established in 1235, as it once was. All that now remains is the tower shown in the centre of the church.

The Nave, St. Nicholas Chapel, Kings Lynn, Norfolk, England, Great Britain
St. Nicholas Chapel, King's Lynn, Norfolk.

The Nave of St. Nicholas Chapel is, as you might expect in a church of 200 feet in length, very large with an exceptionally fine medieval roof.

If you look carefully you will see that between each of the trussess there is the figure of an angel.

A Carved Wooden Angel, St. Nicholas Chapel, Kings Lynn, Norfolk, England, Great Britain
St. Nicholas Chapel, King's Lynn, Norfolk.

These carved wooden angels, with outstretched wings, sing and play musical instruments. One holds a recorder - the earliest ever portrayal of the instrument in church and the one in the picture appears to be playing a lute.

Notice the smaller carved angels along the lower edge of the roof.

An Ornate Memorial, St. Nicholas Chapel, Kings Lynn, Norfolk, England, Great Britain
St. Nicholas Chapel, King's Lynn, Norfolk.

A striking memorial to Sir Thomas Greene and Susannah Barker his wife. It dates from the 17th century, and they are shown in life-like effigy, warts and all. You can't help thinking that they would be recognisable to those who had known them. What makes the memorial so memorable though, is the array of their children beneath, who also appear modeled from life, each with their own character.

The Exorcist's House, Kings Lynn, Norfolk, England, Great Britain
St. Nicholas Chapel, King's Lynn, Norfolk.

Just outside St. Nicholas' Churchyard is the Exorcist's House built in 1635. The position of Exorcist in olden times was one which a Catholic priest could hold as he progressed up the church career ladder. This house has a reputation of being haunted.
