Masons' mark    Masons' mark
Masons' marks carved into the stonework of the Chapel.
Rubbings made by Dr G.G. Coulton, c. 1911. Reference: Coll.19.4

Masons' marks are a form of signature etched into the stone and, tucked away in hidden corners, they remind us of the men who lived and died during the construction of the Chapel. Comparisons can be made with marks in other chapels and churches to track the craftsmen as they moved around the country.
