There is other engraved glass by Laurence Whistler in the cathedral which I won't include here, as photographing clear glass rarely does it justice.

This website includes a couple of photographs of the window in Manaton's St. Winifred's Church (which are much clearer than mine). The Hunt Window, as it is called, was made by Sylvester Sparrow, of Hammersmith, using the old technique of varying the thickness of glass to give texture and depth of colour.
The window was commissioned by Cecil Hunt in memory of his son Esmond, aged 19, who died in 1927. It refers to Foxworthy Farm, (the Hunt's Devon home), music (choir boys singing), flowers, foliage and family crests. It is a personal statement, in a beautiful setting, that is almost impossible to create today. A modern monument in an ancient setting. I wonder how it came to pass?
But my favourite is a memorial to the Niven family, who lived at Marden Grange. I assume they're related to David Niven, who lived not far away in Wilcot, near Pewsey. The window was designed by Molly Kettlewell in 1979. It depicts the views from Marden, to the north & to the south:
The dining room in the little family's home is my favourite room - it looks out onto a modern conservatory and garden through some rather lovely art deco windows. The doors had been removed but were found at the side of the house so there are plans to replace them.
Note: Art Deco was a popular international design movement from 1925 - 1939
Today I went along to the Wiltshire Heritage Museum in Devizes specifically to see a small exhibition of stained glass called Wiltshire sky and Light by Tony Bolland. The museum at Devizes is a superb resource for anyone interested in the fascinating archaeology and history of Wiltshire. After spending time with the beautiful stained glass exhibits I then spent a while in the Neolithic and Bronze Age rooms.
