Brass Rubbing

Want to have a go at this old and very British hobby? Coming into existence during the 17th century. A sturdy piece of paper is placed over a brass plaque then rubbed with a treated wax.

Want to give it a try? The crypt in St-Martin-in the-Fields church (near Trafalgar Square) has 90 brass replicas for you to choose from.
