2001/2: Seen in Kilburn Church, an old mouse carving on a lectern and an early chair crafted by Robert Thompson.

Robert was born in 1876 and became a furniture maker in his home town of Kilburn, he specialised in making furniture of Yorkshire oak which featured a carved mouse, hence his nickname "the mouseman of Kilburn".

It is said that when working in the church a remark had been made about being as poor as church mice, he then began his signature mouse carving on each piece he made.

He died in 1955, the business is still located in Kilburn where his descendants continue to carve his mice on the furniture they produce.
