Etched Glass Church window

Recommended Posts

 
St Nicholas Moreton, Dorset a change from painted glass window!

The original dedication to St Magnus Martyr was changed to St. Nicholas in 1490. Bombing on 8 October 1940 extensively damaged the church. Created as part of the refurbishment following the war, the 13 engraved glass windows (1955-85) are by Sir Laurence Whistler, who revived glass engraving in the 20th century. Lawrence of Arabia (T E Lawrence) was buried in the churchyard following his funeral in the church.

Absolutely Chris, tricky to photograph as the light needs to be on your side!
