Loughborough Church Narthex Window by 


Stained glass window just above the entrance door of Loughborough Parish Church (viewing from the lobby).
Leicestershire, England.

Loughborough Parish Church is one of the major churches in Leicestershire. Its handsome 14th century proportions are crowned by its elaborate and pinnacled tower and clerestory which date from the 15th century. All this reflects the wealth and patronage of the local manor lords and more especially the merchants and wool traders of those times. Many of their heraldic symbols still embellish the external insets of the great west window and of the tower door. But the history goes back further than this, and the church almost certainly sits on both Norman and Saxon predecessors. (Source: http://www.aswht.org)

    Great composition and an unusual tracery pattern above the main lights of the window. We have one church in Kent which professes to have a Narthex – nice to see suh a great sounding word.
