Travel Tips for Tewkesbury

Mason's marks

by leics

Medieval masons all had their own way of marking the stones they worked.

It's not unusual to see them in our ancient cathedrals and religious buildings, but you have to know what to look for.

From the Norman (1066 >) period onwards masons chose any mark they fancied to identify their work, and these marks were often passed down through the family.

Tewkesbury Abbey, very helpfully, has an information sign on one of the pillars (near the entrance) which has several such marks at a low enough level to be seen. Many of them, interestingly, also appear in Gloucester cathedral showing that the same skilled men (or their descendants) were used for such building projects as and when they were needed, wherever they might be.

Tewkesbury: A Charming Cotswolds Town

"Tewkesbury"

Here is a great place for a day excursion from Gloucester or Cheltenham. Charles Dickens wrote about it in his novel The Pickwick Papers. Its best-known feature is the parish church, Tewkesbury Abbey.
