I first spotted this lovely little window from the street. When I finally gained access to the Health Hydro I tracked it down to a room which is now a lavatory - this secular little window in a public building has pride of place on this blog.
The above window was made and donated to Christchurch in 1987 by stained glass artist John Hayward to replace a window that had been vandalised.
The two windows depicted above and below were donated in 1922 in memory of Fitzroy Pleydell Goddard who was part of the Goddard Family the long standing Lords of the Manor in old Swindon. The window below is particularly interesting as the upper part of the window portrays a country landscape. The lower part includes two sets of Coats of Arms one which has a golden stag and the other a pair of ravens.
17th century Dutch stained glass artist Abraham van Linge has created two beautiful though very different windows at Lydiard House and in the small St Mary's Church at Lydiard Tregoze (the church was built in the grounds of the house and had its own private access from the the house). Abraham van Lingue had a signature that appeared in all his work, a small sailing boat with an unfurled sail, see just below the leaves of the tree in the detail on the left.
This magnificent stained glass window appears over the main alter in St Mary's Church at Lydiard Tregoze.
