St. Alban the Martyr

The Station of the Cross

Coming soon - pictures and information about our fine set of the Stations of the Cross.

Our set of stations were carved to order over five years from 1914 to 1919 to replace an earlier set. We do not know who carved them. The first stations carved cost £10, but costs rose during the First World War, and the last cost £12 10s.
