Thirteenth-century figure

24 February 2017


The “Coombes cru­cifix”, a rare fragment of early medieval sacred metalwork acquired by Chichester Ca­thedral. The crucifix was found in the churchyard of Coombes Parish Church in 1877, and put on display in the church. It was stolen in 2012, but found four years later. Because the Grade I listed church was relatively isolated, and had no electricity for an alarm, the Priest-in-Charge and church­wardens applied for a faculty for the figure to be made the subject of a long-term loan to the cathedral. The historic Corpus figure is now on display in the cathedral’s treasury
