East Tilbury Church - window detail

photo and text by Glynn Wadeson
Just thought you might like to see this detail of a stained glass memorial window in St. Mary's church East Tilbury. I liked the way the sun ws lighting it from the inside.....The church sits all on its own but close to the 19th century 'CoalHouse fort' which was built by General Gordon (of Khartoum fame) and guarded the Thames estuary. The church has a a plaque put up by the military engineers who also rebuilt a tower (though not the vicarage and east end of the nave) which were destroyed by Dutch navy ships cannon fire in their 1608 foray against the Royal Navy!

The above photograph and text was sent to me by my old friend Glynn who now lives in Walthamstow, East London - many thanks, Glynn.
