Southwell – Stations of the Cross


Also in Southwell Minster we enjoyed (if that is the right word) Jonathan Clark’s “Stations of the Cross”. Back, I assume in 2000, several Suffolk churches had a Stations exhibition – we had a minibus and a group from the Cockfield Benefice explored different churches to go and see them. Clark’s set has been installed here in Southwell – “Please touch”. They are quite moving – the photos don’t do them justice.

    These were brilliant and a great way to present the Stations of the Cross for liturgical use. Full marks to Jonathan Clark. I am delighted that English cathedrals are commissioning and displaying so many excellent examples of modern art. I am sure such works will become very valuable and important items of our heritage.
