The Lectern at Little Gidding was purchased by the Ferrars in 1625. It is of a pattern that is also to be found in a number of churches in West Norfolk, including those shown on this page.

There are some 40 or so surviving English mediaeval brass eagle lecterns, including the one at Little Gidding. Over half of them are in the east of the country (Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire and Huntingdonshire), suggesting an origin in this area, perhaps Norwich or Bury St Edmunds. Charles Oman (in his seminal paper Medieval Brass Lecterns in England, page 130, fn 17) noted that it was “presented to the church in 1625 by Nicholas Ferrar who described it in a manuscript as ‘a pillar and eagle of brass for the Bible.’ Its previous history is unknown, but can it have been the eagle lectern mentioned in the dissolution inventory of the neighbouring Sawtry Priory?”
