Description

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre was founded by 12th-century Crusaders to commemorate the church of the same name in Jerusalem. It now houses the Brass Rubbing Centre, featuring over 100 facsimiles of old brasses, including armored knights and ladies of the manor, that were once popular decorations on medieval tombs and the closest thing to a photograph in that time. Copies of the brasses, made by covering the brass sheet and rubbing pastels over it, can be purchased.
