St Andrew's Church, Roker, Sunderland: detail of the altar cross with the tapestry behind

Prior, Edward Schroeder (1852-1932)
NOTES: The church was designed by E. S. Prior and A. Randall Wells, who had been Lethaby's Clerk of Works at Brockhampton (1904). Many of the fixtures and fittings are by Ernest Gimson, notably the oak panelled chancel and the oak choir stalls. The altar cross is polished wrought iron, made by Alfred Bucknell (1906), Gimson's blacksmith at his Sapperton works. The tapestry depicts the visit of the Three Wise Men and is a copy of a painting by Burne-Jones made by Morris & Co. for the church.

NOTES: This palace was built for the Duke of Urbino, Federico da Montefeltro, between 1444 and 1472. Luciano Laurana from Dalmatia was appointed chief architect in 1468. The Sala degli Angeli is so called from the decorations around the fireplace executed by the sculptor Domenico Rosselli.

Knole, Sevenoaks, Kent: the King's Bedroom

NOTES: The house was built by Thomas Bourchier, Archbishop of Canterbury, between 1456 and 1486. It passed into Royal possession in 1537 during the Dissolution. In 1566, Elizabeth I presented the house and estate to her cousin Thomas Sackville, 1st Earl of Dorset, who substantially remodelled the medieval palace between 1603 and 1608. The King's Bedroom is traditionally supposed to have been decorated for the reception of King James I, but the bed and complementary furnishings have subsequently be correctly dated to later in the 17th century.
