St George at Rossall School

Rossall School is one of the finest schools on the Fylde coast. It is very near to Fleetwood and is really close to the seafront, in fact just yards away. This is not the time and the place to discuss the history of the school or even post a link, but it has a really fine chapel - it is need of repair too. There are fine memorials there. However out off the set of photographs I took, this is one that stands out. The window is a tad out of focus but this brings the statue of St George into even closer detail.

The statue is in wood - probably oak
I spent a wonderful morning at the chapel photographing the artifacts - like this picture Bits of the wood are polished where hands have rubbed it.
