While I was away in Melbourne I was watching an ebay auction for a brass rubbing of Richard & Elizabeth Wakehurst. It was located in Tasmania and was “pick up” only. Me being me, emailed the seller to see if he would consider removing it from it’s frame and posting it to me if I won, a shame as it was framed and is 5 feet high by 2 feet wide, but the only way for me to get it… murphys law I won it!
Fingers crossed he removes it carefully, and it won’t cost too much to have it reframed, but I suspect It will be costly. Can’t wait to see it!
The original Brass is located in St Peters Church in Ardingly, Sussex.
