This window was designed by Benjamin Bucknall and heavily influenced by French Gothic-enthusiast Violet-le-Duc, who even sent over French glaziers to put in the white “pre-stained” glass for the initial construction phases. The chapel is the grandest room in Woodchester Mansion, but it has been severely damaged by a failed rainwater drainage system. Ho, ho, ho!

  5. I don’t like all stained glass windows, but I LOVE this one, maybe because it isn’t colorful. The b/w is fantastic, and the graphics just send me!
