Greenwood Hare chasuble at St John Epping

St John's Epping - White Bodley Chasuble 002

There are some lovely photos on Flickr of a recently restored chasuble at St John's Epping in Essex.  A wonderful vestment blending Gothic and Renaissance motifs, it was designed by Cecil Greenwood Hare, Bodley's chief assistant and made by Watts and Co. There is more information here.
