Devon's Ancient Bench Ends by Todd Gray.
Devon's Ancient Bench Ends is the first in-depth study of a collection of carvings which is nationally renowned as one of the greatest in England but remains largely unfamiliar to the general public as well as confusing to specialists. The research has encompassed repeated visits to the 123 of the 605 ancient churches which have bench ends as well as a long investigation into the documentary evidence in the county's three local authority archives.
