Abraham van Linge at Lydiard Tregoze

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.
