The Carpenters' Workshop, Cornish and Gaymer. - North Walsham Photograph

The Carpenters' Workshop, Cornish and Gaymer.

(1918-1922 / North Walsham, Norfolk)

Cornish and Gaymer's Joiners' shop, also at Millfield, was situated beside the railway. Their most famous carver was Charles Henry Simpson, who was born at North Walsham in 1856. His first piece of work, when he was sixteen years old, was the carving on the altar of the Parish Church. Other examples of his work are to be found in Norwich Cathedral, Durham Cathedral, Winchester College Chapel, the crucifix in the grounds of the Roman Catholic Church at North Walsham and a host of other Norfolk and Norwich churches.
