Sighting – Sherborne Abbey

Intrepid Green Man Hunter Derek Penrose visited Sherborne Abbey in Dorset and noticed on a postcard in the Abbey shop that they had a number of Misericord carvings including one that contained a “Foliate Mask.” He spoke to the really helpful staff in the abbey who allowed him to go and photograph the misericords which were not normally accessible to the public.
