These new carvings are being made with kind permission from The CS Lewis Company Ltd by stone carvers at the local firm of Matthias Garn Master Mason & Partner, based on designs developed by one of its sculptors, Kibby Schaefer. The carvings will be installed high up on the exterior of the church in the autumn, and exhibited at ground level in Beverley beforehand. Learn more about this exciting project here:
