Thwaite All Saints 

The Pulpit dates to the reign of James 1 and its date, 1624, is seen plainly below the sounding board. That was a time when the sermon was a prominent part of every service. Restoration work was done on the pulpit in 1890.

 

Between the Nave or main body of the church and the Chancel are the remains of a Screen. In 1559, At the Reformation its top was sawn off so there would be no barrier between the people and the altar. The Screen has some fine medieval carpentry.
