THE LATE GOTHIC CHANCEL WINDOW IN FAIRFORD CHURCH, GLOUCESTERSHIRE

THE LATE GOTHIC CHANCEL WINDOW IN FAIRFORD CHURCH, GLOUCESTERSHIRE

Fairford Church in Gloucestershire is a veritable museum of ancient stained glass wrought by English and Flemish craftsmen of the early sixteenth century. The photograph shows the east window of the chancel, the upper half representing the Crucifixion and the lower the incidents of the Passion leading up to it. This and other windows were restored and re-leaded in 1889, when a certain amount of new material had to be introduced in order to make good previous damage to the glass by removal or storm
