  1. This is a beautiful but curious window, Adrian. 15th century, is it? The crucifixion scene with the Virgin and SS George, Catherine and John look almost German or Dutch, while the windows with local worthies either side seem to be by local craftsman. Do you know the story?

      • Right, Adrian, I’ve found some info and it seems I’m in the right area, so no face lost! If this is the east window then it includes “some early-16th-century and17th-century coloured glass. Above an inscription in memory of Sir Edward Ferrers and Lady Constance, who had the window put up, are their kneeling figures with three sons and five daughters, and scrolls with the inscriptions ‘Sancte Georgi ora pro nobis’ and ‘Sancta Katerina, ora pro nobis’.” The early 16th-century glass is close to the late 15th that I thought, while the glass for the local worthies must be from the 1600s.
