Calvary

At the west end of the north aisle is the Calvary, designed by Cecil Hare as a memorial to Fr Twisaday's predecessor as Vicar, Fr Herbert Ridley (Vicar from 1907 to 1931).

The Calvary is used for various activity throught the year. Over the Easter period, the Calvary undergoes a few changes, starting with Holy Thursday where the Calvary is transformed to be the resting place for the Blessed Sacrament. On Holy Saturday it is once again transformed for the Easter Vigil and becomes Easter garden. During the month of November the Calvary is used for the rememberance of the souls of the departed. At Christmas it is the location of the Crib.
