Lectern, Fotheringhay

Lectern, Fotheringhay
A modern (1904) brass lectern in a mediaeval church. The parish church of St Mary and All Saints was begun in 1434 as an extension to a slightly earlier collegiate church that no longer exists. The parish church was listed Grade I in 1967. Supporters of the church have an informative site here.

Fotheringhay, in Northamptonshire, is today a small village but was once a centre of Yorkist power, with a Norman castle that had been extended and strengthened. Richard III was born there in 1452. Over a hundred years later, it was the site of the beheading of Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots, in 1587.

The castle was slighted in the 1630s. Only the motte and a fragment of wall remain.
