St. Faiths Altar Cloth Dedication Service
Friday 16 June 2017

At 7:00p.m.on 16th June 2017, following the Bacton Altar Cloth lecture by Eleri Lynn, curator of dress at Hampton Court Palace, there was a service of dedication and a celebration of the Altar cloth at St. Faith's church, Bacton. The altar cloth, believed to be a part of a dress made for Queen Elizabeth I, is currently being restored at Hampton court. Unique and priceless, it will remain at Hampton Court and, when restoration is complete, will be put on display.

A high quality copy has been made and is on permanent display in Bacton church.
