College Chapel

All students who attend Winchester college are required to attend Sunday services in the chapel.

The guide who took us round the college explained that the main window in the church was a replica. The original had gone for cleaning and those undertaking the operation damaged some of the pains of glass. So they made a new window instead of continuing with the cleaning.  The colours are not at all the same as the original window as can be seen in the second and third photos which are windows using the original glass which was located after the fraud had been discovered.

The guide also told us that she thought some of the original glass could be seen in a church in Shrewsbury, I must find time to go and investigate.

    Ahhhh! The details only the tour guides seem to know! Lovely chapel, Cherry, to “have” to sit in every Sunday for services. (sigh)

  2. Shrewsbury? That’s another place I’d love to see one day. :)
