    Abstract

    Three surviving stone lecterns are described and analysed in terms of their petrography and sculptural style. The similarity between their petrography strongly suggests that they share a common origin, traceable to a quarry or quarries in the immediate vicinity of Much Wenlock, and that the similarity of sculptural style and dimensions points to them being a product of a single workshop. Furthermore, the authors suggest that the petrographie and stylistic characteristics show striking similarities to the Much Wenlock lavabo, thus adding support to the notion of a Much Wenlock workshop.
