Stained Glass, All Saints Banstead

All Saints’ Church, Banstead was attended by my parents-in-law most Sundays for decades.  From the outside it is an attractive buidling, but no more so than any other of the nine hundred year old churches that dot our countryside,  Inside it is blessed with a wealth of beautiful stained glass.  This window is my favourite, it was commissioned by John Robertson to commemorate the death of his wife Josephine in a riding accident in 1870 and was made by John Hardman who did the stained glass for the Houses of Parliament.  I love the way the Angels seem to be welcoming and caring.

This weekend All Saints’ was open as part of the Hertitage Open Days, to find somewhere amazing near you click on the link and head out of the house.

    I love stained glass and this window is exceptional. You’re right about the angels. I bet you really love Heritage Open Days (although who doesn’t, really?) 🙂 #MySundayPhoto.
