Carvings at Melrose

The first is St. Peter with his key and books on the west wall of the north transept – the chapels in the north transept were dedicated to Peter and Paul – and casts of those same statues (+ St. Andrew) Sir Walter Scott had copied for Abbotsford’s entrance hall. 

I only took a few photos – my phone camera was running out of space. I missed the bagpipe playing pig! I’ll have to return for that! Many statues defaced during the time of Protestant reformation, including the primary one of Virgin and child.
