the forgotten face of a young man…

… fragments of medieval stained glass.

    • It looks like it doesnt it? Hard to say – the two windows in the church porch that these came from looked almost like they’d been made up of fragments from other windows. I must see if there’s any info in the church next time I’m passing. Norfolk has so many gorgeous, unspoilt, medieval churches.

    • Thanks Helen. It makes for a nice few hours as you can pop across the road from the church to the Deepdale cafe and the several lovely shops around it. And then of course there’s the beach ;o)
