4b Bury St. Edmunds, St. Mary's, hammerbeam
roof, detail of angel and brace.
The elaborate hammerbeam roof of angels vested for a High Mass was
given about 1445 by the layman John Baret. On the braces of the angels
nearest the chancel he set his personal mottoes: God me gyde and Grace
me governe (God guide me and grace govern me).
