Exeter Cathedral - Martyrs' Pulpit

The pulpit was designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott who carried out restoration work at the cathedral in the 1870s. 

It depicts the martyrdom od Saints Alban and Boniface and of Bishop John Coleridge Patteson, a Devonian who became the first Bishop of Melanesia in the South Pacific and was martyred in 1871.  The pulpit was erected in 1877.
