Garbett by The Prioress Of Whitby
As Archbishop of York, Dr Garbett worked tirelessly as the chief pastor of Christ's flock in the north of England, and became famous as the "Walking Bishop" who, clad in his purple cassock and using his bishop's crosier as a walking stick, he traversed his Province from one end to the other, spending time with as many of his clergy and people as he could in the villages and towns that he visited. Archbishop Garbett was also much respected by, and had great influence with, Their Majesties The King and Queen, and also with the members of the House of Lords. Dr Garbett dutifully attended the House of Lords every day that Parliament was in session, taking very seriously his right as the Primate of England and a Bishop of the Established Church to sit in the House of Lords. Politically and theologically, he is best seen as a transitional figure between the Edwardian and modern periods of the Church of England.
