The Creation Window... (Outside View)

The Creation Window... (Outside View)
The parish church of St. Mary was built in the 14th century of red sandstone and stands in the centre of the bustling market town of Nantwich, Cheshire.

The church is designated by English Heritage as a Grade I listed building.

Situated in the North aisle is the newest stained glass in the church the “Creation” window given in 1984 by Mrs Elizabeth Bourne in memory of her husband Albert, a local farmer.

Great, love the detail and so little distortion as well. It's great how sandstone weathers, especially the softer red sandstones.

Great contrast between all those soft earthy sandstone colours and the right glass.

Unusual, as though turned inside out.

thank you - much appreciated... to me, it carries an air of "wrongness" - the distortion doesn't help...
