The Mouseman

Named after the famous British furniture maker, Robert Thompson (1877-1955), known as ‘Mouseman’. Thompson was a furniture maker from the village of Kilburn, North Yorkshire, famous for his oak furniture which features a carving of a mouse on most of his pieces.  In 1929, Howden Minster suffered a fire started by arsonists which destroyed all the woodwork. The Mouseman was commissioned to replace the choir stalls, altar and communion rails and almost 40 mice are hidden within his work. The gothic-style oak door in Bishops Manor features a carved mouse on the inside, so it is believed the door is the work of the Mouseman.
