A carpenter’s rude carving on a church ceiling has been exposed hundreds of years later.
The x-rated carving has been discovered at Hereford’s All Saints Church, due to the construction of a new cafe taking place.
The carving was spotted when a light was shone at the ceiling of the church, due to the cafe building an extra floor with bright lights for the restaurant area.
The carving depicts a naked man holding his legs in the air, exposing his genitalia for the world to see. A controversial choice for such a religious location.
