Pews or not pews??

Please dont think that I am obsessed with the pew question – though whenI went on holiday to Norfolk in early July I was fascinated to see a medieval church which had actually taken the pews out and put iflexible chair seating.

In a short space of time, I went into one medieval church ( complete with rood screen and painted saints) which was full of pews and one medieval church ( complete with rood screen and  painted saints) which was all chairs and tables.

What do you think?

North Elmham Church- with pews

Mattishall Church with chairs – loads of flexibility.

Guess which one I would go for? Apparantly on a sunday the chairs are all put in nice neat rows. The ladies how let me into the church apologised for it being a bit untidy!
