The only reminders of Woburn Abbey in the church are the roundels along the nave walls which commemorate, by their coats of arms, the benefactors of the abbey and its last abbot before the dissolution of the monasteries. One such roundel can be seen in the photograph (below).

The Pulpit, Choir and Sanctuary at St Mary the Virgin Parish Church during the Floral Celebration. The Festival Designer, Suzanne Boet, writes:
"There have been tremendous changes in the world since the Parish Church of St Mary, Woburn was consecrated 140 years ago. The use of flowers for decoration has also changed in many ways during that time. To illustrate the theme of the Flower Festival we have chosen just some of the styles that have been popular during the same 140 years to the present day.
In celebration of this special event in the church's history we have great pleasure in taking you for a 'Walk Through Time'"

Thank you, Suzanne and your Organising Team, for providing this uplifting experience for so many to enjoy!
