St Mary's Beverley

 

Stained glass in St. Mary's Church, Beverley.  Most of the glas was designed by the Victorian artist/architect/designer, Augustus Pugin (1812-1852) - best known for his redesign of the interior of the Palace of Westminster.

Tom Wilson: Thanks, Peter - apparently, the church has a small amount of medieval glass left, but I didn't discover this until I got home!

Very typical Victorian glass, Tom
Tom Wilson: Absolutely - apparently there are a few more churches in the country with Pugin-designed glass.
It is an elegant design Tom.
Tom Wilson: It is, isn't it?
This could only be Victorian...you either love it or hate it...like Marmite.
Tom Wilson: I think that is quite a good example of its kind, Bill.

A fine shot of the glass Tom, indeed it tells the story of Easter.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Brian.
Wonderful work of art ,Tom
Tom Wilson: When you consider how many little bits of glass had to be assembled, it's quite wonderful!
