"Another object of much interest and admiration in the choir is the exquisitely carved oaken stalls, which with the other ornaments, have been designed as nearly as possible from those destroyed by fire in 1829. The brass eagle, from which the lessons are read, was presented by the Hon. and Rev. J. L. Saville, Earl of Scarboro', to supply the place of the former one, burnt when the choir was destroyed by fire in 1829.

The choir is open for public worship every week day at 10 A.M. and 4 P.M., and on Sunday at half-past ten and four o'clock."

Descriptive letterpress from the book 'Photographs of English and Scottish Scenery' by G W Wilson
