This is the interior of St Mary's parish church, Whitby. See how the pulpit towers over the pews. The pews are wooden enclosures, giving each family a sense of privacy. Many have family names inscribed on their doors. One set of pews has "strangers" inscribed on its door. I'm sorry that the pulpit appears to be toppling over, but as I straightened the supporting pillar on the right hand side to line up with the picture frame, the pew became sqew wiff!
