St Mary's East Window

At the beginning of the month I showed you a glimpse of the East Window through the entrance to St Mary's.

The church is Grade I listed and whilst the chancel dates from before 1334, the nave and tower were rebuilt in 1814 after the original tower was cracked due to excessive bell ringing in celebration of Nelson's victory at the battle of Trafalgar.

The tower has recently been renovated again and the interior of the church is still undergoing restoration.

More information can be found on the St Mary's in the Market Place website.

A contribution to Inspired Sundays and also Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors.


  1. It is interesting that the bell-ringing caused the tower to crack! In effect, the bell served as an acoustical bomb!

    What a lovely stained glass window!

    The Church of the Nativity is «Louis'» inSPIREd Sunday post this week. This happens to be the parish attended by "Dr. Mc" of The Friday Funnies fame.

  2. I always like the look of stained glass windows. This example is beautiful.

  3. So traditional, so perfect, I seem to be stuck in the past.

  4. Wow, that is breathtaking! What a wonderful find!
