One of the delights (not this year) at this time is/was/would be visiting Anglican churches to see and pray at the Easter Garden. I don't know how often they are found in other parts of the anglophone world, but they are found in many Anglican parishes in England - not in the "extreme" High or the Extreme Low or modern, but usually in the ordinary,simple old style Middle Church places. Usually decorated with flowers and moss and with old figures - usually having been made by Mowbrays or Wantage Convent in the 1920s/30s/40s. [NOT the gaudy modern figures made in Italy and sometimes found under the Forward Altar in modern Roman Catholic churches] Does anyone have any information about when and where they started ? I have often tried (unsuccessfully) to find out. I would be grateful for any information.
