THESE REMARKABLE CHAIRS ARE FREESTANDING WHICH IS VERY UNUSUAL AS THEY ARE NORMALLY FOUND CONJOINED IN ROWS WITHIN AN AREA DEVOTED TO THE CHURCH CHOIR. THE BACK MOULDED LEGS ARE SPLAYED OUTWARD AND JOINED BY A PINNED STRETCHER AS ARE THE FRONT ONES. THE DEEPLY CARVED IMAGERY ON ALL THREE CHAIRS CONSISTS OF A CENTRAL CARVED MISERICORD SEAT FLANKED ON EACH ARMREST BY UNUSUALLY PROMINENT CARVED FIGURES, EACH FIGURE WITH ITS OWN MEDIEVAL MEANING. THERE IS NO REAL EVIDENCE OF THEM EVER BEING CONJOINED, BUT IF THEY WHERE IT WAS POSSIBLY AT A STAGE VERY EARLY IN THEIR CONSTRUCTION.

THESE THREE MISERICORD SEATS ARE VERY RARE SURVIVORS OF SCOTTISH MEDIEVAL FURNITURE.
