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).
