The Memorial Book Stand is in Barts the Great

All News, League

After some much needed restoration at Men in Sheds, the League memorial book stand has returned to London. If the setting in the photo looks a bit strange, it is because the stand is temporarily in Barts the Great Church while Barts the Less gets a makeover as part of the wider heritage programme.

You’ll find the memorial stand in the Lady Chapel in this historic church, which is well worth a visit. The Lady Chapel was built in the 12th century by Rahere. During the eighteenth century it was a printing works owned by Samuel Palmer. One of Palmer’s most notable employees was a young Benjamin Franklin, who became the Founding Father of the United States of America.

Once the restoration work at Barts the Less is complete, the memorial stand will return to its usual place.
