The Alderney Bayeux Tapestry Finale

It measures just under 3 metres in length and 50 cms in height – compared to the original Bayeux Tapestry which extends to 68,38 metres. Yet, Alderney’s Bayeux Tapestry Finale has made a big impact on all who have been involved in creating this superb community project. It has captured the interest of the worldwide media and has fascinated hundreds of people who have been involved in the creation of this unique version.

Is this the end of the Bayeux Tapestry?

“It is a little known fact that the Bayeux Tapestry is incomplete. The famous embroidery tracks in 58 scenes the events of the Norman conquest leading up to the Battle of Hastings, but runs out before this period of history reaches its conclusion: the coronation of William the Conqueror in London on Christmas Day in 1066”..
Widget Finn – Weekend Telegraph, 10 November 2012.

In fact, most experts now believe that a piece between 8-10 feet depicting the coronation of William I would have been included in the original work.

Channel Island Alderney delivers a grand Finale

This year marks the 950th anniversary of the Norman Conquest. But what really happened after the Battle of Hastings on 14 October 1066?

In fact, most experts now believe that a piece between 8-10 feet, depicting a scene of the coronation of William I, would have been included in the original work.
However, an embroidered panel produced in the Channel Island of Alderney has delivered the missing chapter with a plausible conclusion.

Alderney's final chapter, embracing its strong and historic Normandy connection, features the Norman Conquest and the coronation of William at Westminster Abbey and concludes with the construction of the White Tower using stone imported from Caen. View photos...

Community project turns into biggest stitch-up

The project was conceived of by three Alderney residents: Kate Russell who originated the project, artist Pauline Black who produced the designs and Robin Whicker who created the inscriptions, using the Latin current at that time. and, assisted with  expertise from Oxford-based Jane Bliss, the creators Kate Russell and Pauline Black decided this should become a true community project.

On 1 Feb 2012, Kate Russell and Pauline Black completed their first stitches which were followed by thousands and thousands of stitches added by over 400 individuals from and off the Island of Alderney, who made Alderney’s Bayeux Tapestry Finale one of the biggest community projects of its kind.

Among the stitchers were Their Royal HighnessesThe Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall who visited the island on 20 July 2012 and were presented with a special embroidery of the tapestry representing the Channel Islands of Jersey, Guernsey and Alderney. View photos...

On 28 February 2013, this unique and ambitious masterpiece, was finally completed. On Friday 5 April 2013, when Alderney's tapestry was officially unveiled on the island by the curator of the Bayeux Tapestry Museum , Mme Sylvette Lemagnen, and the President du Conseil de la Manche Monsieur Jean François Le Grand, Alderney's Bayeux Tapestry finale instantly received their seal of approval.

From 1 July until 9 September 2014 Alderney’s Finale was exhibited in the Bayeux Tapestry Museum under the same roof as the world-famous Bayeux Tapestry and was seen by over 140,000 visitors. Alderney’s Finale has created so much interest that a high quality replica of the tapestry has been retained by the Bayeux Tapestry Museum.

Now the original is back in Alderney on permanent display in the Alderney Library, but this year, which marks the 950th anniversary of the Norman Conquest, our tapestry will be taken on a roadshow to be exhibited at different historic locations in the Channel Islands and the UK. The exact dates and locations will be published on this page.

Narration en français

La célèbre Tapisserie de Bayeux trouve une fin plausible:
Les dernières scènes brodées à Aurigny obtiennent l’approbation officielle:


Un 'point de suture' dans le temps, comme si l'histoire commencée il y a 900 ans trouvait une fin plausible en 2013.
Peu de gens savait que la Tapisserie de Bayeux était incomplète. La célèbre tapisserie retrace les évènements de la Conquête Normande, jusqu’à la bataille d’Hastings en 58 scènes. Cependant, elle se termine avant que cette période n’arrive à son terme : le Couronnement de Guillaume le Conquérant à Londres, le jour de Noël 1066. » Widget Finn – Weekend Telegraph, le 10 Novembre 2012.
De fait, la plupart des experts estiment, à présent, qu’une scène de 2.5 à 3 mètres représentant le couronnement de Guillaume 1er, devrait faire partie de la tapisserie originale.
Récemment, une broderie réalisée sur l’île Anglo-Normande d’Aurigny propose une interprétation plausible de la scène manquante.

Depuis le début du projet, Kate Russell, habitante d’Aurigny, souhaitait que la reconstitution de la partie manquante de la tapisserie soit la plus proche possible de ce qu’avait pu être l’originale.

La tapisserie d’Aurigny a été créée par Kate Russel, bibliothécaire, et par l’artiste Pauline Black, toutes deux habitantes d’Aurigny, en Février 2012 et inspirée par les travaux préliminaires de Jan Messent. Une année complète a été nécessaire à sa réalisation qui, par un effet boule-de-neige est devenue l’un des plus grands projets communautaires, impliquant plus de 400 personnes heureuses d’ajouter leurs points à cette histoire.


La reconstitution de la partie manquante de la tapisserie proposée par les habitants d’Aurigny montre quatre scènes historiques importantes. Elle a été brodée suivant les mêmes techniques : tissus identiques, couleurs et types de laine similaires. La narration historique est représentée dans l’espace central de la tapisserie. Celui-ci est bordé de deux filets, l’un supérieur, l’autre inférieur, montrant des animaux mythiques similaires à ceux figurant sur la tapisserie de Bayeux. Parfois, les images figurant dans ces marges horizontales viennent commenter ou compléter la scène centrale.
Et on n’aurait pas pu souhaiter une issue plus heureuse : cette œuvre unique a immédiatement reçu l’approbation générale lors de sa présentation officielle, le 5 avril 2013 au cours de laquelle Sylvette Lemagnen, conservatrice du Musée de la Tapisserie de Bayeux et M. Jean-François Le Grand, Président du Conseil de la Manche l’avait dévoilée au public.

Du 1 juillet au 9 septembre la tapisserie d'Aurigny etait en exposition au Musée de la Tapisserie de Bayeux et vue par plus de 140,000 visiteurs. Elle est désormais à la Librairie d'Aurigny. Une replique de l'original reste en exposition au Musée de Bayeux.
