Margery Kempe

Image of proposed Margery Kempe bench in Kings lynn

King's Lynn Civic Society want to commission a bench for the Saturday Market Place to replace the one lost outside the Town Hall when the upgrade was done. The bench would commemorate Margery Kempe and is inspired by the pew end in the Minster. It will also have her name and dates 1373-c.1440 on it. The Borough Council has agreed the design but will only pay half of the costs. The bench will be situated on the paved 'performance area' and will be movable. We are working to raise the £3,000 we need before the Borough Council will commission the work.

If you would like to make a donation, please contact the secretary (see contacts page).
