With a busy night time economy and some good real ale pubs its too easy to miss out on some startling scenes, I was lucky to walk past this Church one evening when it was lit from inside and created a magical and picturesque scene.
Stepping out of the Caribbean heat and into this wonderful and cool Cathedral is a revelation. The stained glass windows depicting the life and death of Christ are designed with all the colour and flair you would expect on a tropical island.
Using the techniques developed in Europe but with the warmth energy and exuberance of the local people these windows are second to none.
Stained glass should not be kept only in Churches, we have here in a fairly unassuming house the most exquisite windows letting light into a hall way.
The Church of St Chads in Shrewsbury is remarkable for a number of reasons, its round for a start. But what intrigued me is the variety of stained glass on show. There are great windows with beautiful and delicate painted glass. It has traditional leaded stained glass depicting scenes from the Bible and it has huge panels of vivid colours.
Create a stunning effect with this Art Deco window, I’m not sure if you would get away with this in an English terraced house?
A modern Composite door and top light would probably be more in keeping!
