Charles Tracy

Heritage Consultant

For liturgical and practical reasons, an increasing number of English parishes are hoping to re-order all or part of their churches, particularly the nave. I can assist architects and church wardens, by defining the historical and artistic significance of the affected components, such as pews and screens. In potentially sensitive reordering proposals, English Heritage, and other bodies, require a scholarly report to inform any debate arising from a possibly contentious application.

I am a leading authority in this area of scholarship, having published widely on church furniture in both Britain and the continent of Europe.
