Please help us build a photographic record of kneelers that are local, original and unique. This website has fewer than 4,000 kneeler images. There are probably 150,000 original kneelers that are not recorded anywhere.
In a hundred years’ time, people will be fascinated by the social history illustrated on kneelers. A thatcher’s tools, a sewing machine, an oil rig will seem strange and wonderful. How many of the birds and plants featured will still be common?
Please – for the sake of future generations – send us photographs of kneelers that are local, original and unique. The names of the churches holding them will be preserved in the new ARCHIVE section but their kneeler images will at present only be stored off site.
NB: We only want original kneelers. Kneelers made from kits are already recorded in the suppliers’ catalogue. If in doubt, check the kneeler’s base to see if it carries a kit suppliers’ label.
