Chair without seat

Chair without seat, originally uploaded by fotofacade.

Because Saint Edmund's was elevated to mimic the status of Solomon's Temple, the vaults beneath are high enough to walk around in comfortably. I came across this chair (has it been there since 1873?) whilst walking up to the altar area.

Saint Edmund's, Falinge near Rochdale - is a real tour-de-force. Built in the 1870's for £28,000 (when a good church cost £4000). It is a Masonic Church and Pevsner says that it has symbolism to rival the Da Vinci Code Rosslyn Chapel. I am photographing the interior because it is due to close this month.
