Glastonbury Chairs

I have always liked Glastonbury chairs, and during my travels to see cathedrals and abbeys around the I had the opportunity to see lots of Glastonbury chairs.  These pictures are intended to provide some examples of the various types of carving and design work on Glastonbury chairs around the UK. 

Additionally, since I live only an hour or so from Glastonbury and Wells, I was able to visit the Bishop's Palace in Wells and measure the original Glastonbury Chair.  

There are pictures of Glastonbury chairs from cathedrals around the UK, pictures of the original chair in Wells, and pictures (and plans) of my reproduction.
