All Saints Church, North Street is embarking on an exciting project to restore and conserve its unique medieval stained glass, thanks to a grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
Join Robert Richards as he takes you on a socially-distanced tour of the church's stained glass to discover what makes these windows so unique. Look to the future to find out how the windows will be preserved for generations to come.
The church of All Saints, North Street contains an exceptional collection of stained glass dating from the second quarter of the 14th century and the first half of the 15th century, distributed across 13 windows. The glass is not only of great quality, but is also nationally significant, with windows depicting rare and in one instance, unique, subjects in stained glass. The windows offer a glimpse into the devotional life of a wealthy and literate late medieval parish.
Please note: Tickets must be pre-booked. Numbers are limited so that social distancing can be maintained and attendees kept safe. There are blue badge parking bays opposite the church.
