Hereford All Saints:- A 700-year-old ice cream gone viral

The detailed woodcut first became visible to guests in the late 1990s.

Found dead in a drawer

Writes the local newspaper Hereford Times.

– Like childishness

In 2021, pictures of the sculptures have gone viral on the internet, and people can hardly believe it was right to have such a conspicuous figure in the church.
