It was a pretty grey foggy day today. I had planned to do a circuit of a local reservoir but my companion preferred to stay dry, so a revision of venue took us to Holy Trinity church – Wensley, North Yorkshire. It was pretty dark inside the church and not very warm either.
I don’t always take pictures of stained glass when I visit churches, but I picked out these windows, which I thought were a little unusual (?).
” Ah Galahad, Galahad for such as thou art is the Vision“.
The angel above Galahad carries a banner which reads “One crowded hour of glorious life is worth an age without a name.” – I’m afraid, to me, it suggests celebrity rules.
“Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth which was crucified. He is risen. His not here.” Which my research suggests is derived from Mark 16:6 of the King James Bible.
This window commemorates an organist at the church (1906). I wasn’t sure that I was interpreting the window correctly but then I noticed the organ pipes in the background.
Saint Cecilia. I may start a collection of ‘stained glass Saints’.
