The Culpeper Embroidery at Hollingbourne, Kent

The Culpeper Embroidery (c 1630-50) has recently been conserved. Unfortunately the conservator has had to pull out of this event but there will be a presentation on the history of the piece in the church at Hollingbourne (near Ashford and Maidstone) on Saturday 23 November, starting at 10.30. The embroidery will be on display. Tea and coffee will be provided.

The church also has a fine collection of monuments from the 16th-19th centuries, not least the Culpeper Chapel (c 1650), built for the monument by Edward Marshall to Elizabeth Culpeper (d. 1638). Photos of several of the monuments are at .

Demand for this event will be heavy. If interested, contact Val Lurcock, the churchwarden at Hollingbourne, on 01622 880 694 .
