Misericords are seats designed to fold away when not in use.
The underside of the seat has a small shelf that a user can lean against to reduce
discomfort during long periods of standing during services.
Each of the misericords in The Choir of St David’s Cathedral were carved from
a single block of oak.
21 of the seats are Medieval , 7 are Victorian replacements (V).
