18th Century Church Pew
Absolutely stunning and a rare find from the guys at The Eclectic Trading Company.
These solid oak, hand carved, hand cut church pews date from circa 1760 and have been procured from Lathom Chapel near Ormskirk.
Lathom Chapel is a plain rectangular building constructed in about 1500 and a chantry was founded there by the second earl. The chapel, dedicated to St John the Divine, was consecrated by the Bishop of Sodor and Man. The chapel was restored in 1810, at a cost of £1,200. A free school was built at the hamlet of Newburgh in 1714. The chapel holds regular Anglican services. Various plaques in the chapel commemorate the residents of Lathom Hall including the Bootle-Wilbraham.
Simply the nicest church pews I have ever seen. Each joint has been hand formed and finished with an oak dowel. Every section has been cut from a single piece of oak…even the long seating area!
Each bench varies slightly as these have been handmade and now have a stunning patina from hundreds of years of careful usage.
Buy a very special piece of English history that is not available anywhere else. Ideal for your home, office, hairdressers, barbers, restaurant, coffee shop, interior design brief or retail unit.
