Ambleside Church 4/7

Two images of the walls to either side of the altar in St.Mary’s church, Ambleside. I particularly like those two small windows almost at floor level in the South wall.

Very lovely...would like to see that one day.
Brian Walbey: Thansk Bonnie, it is a fine church although parts of it have been modernised and the old and new don't quite gel I feel.
Must have seen this church, at least its steeple, hundreds of times...I've never seen inside 'til now, Brian, thanks.
Brian Walbey: A pleasure Frank, it is quite a nice church, going in so many, as I do, it is difficult to say whether any one is better than another.

Brian Walbey: I've not come across anything like that before.

Yes they are unusual
Brian Walbey: I've not come across anything like that before.
I do love that red!
Brian Walbey: I like the whole altar cloth and the red is so majestic I feel.

The two small windows are enjoyable.
Brian Walbey: I've not come across anything like that before.
Very nice windows, Brian.
Brian Walbey: My thought as well Tom.

I wonder if they were originally unglazed, and made for people who were considered to be "lepers" though they probably had some other disease. Wiki says "Where a squint was made in an external wall so that lepers and other non-desirables could see the service without coming into contact with the rest of the populace, they are termed leper windows or lynchoscopes
Yes they are rather a delight Brian
Brian Walbey: Trouble is I'm still not very good at photographing stained glass wimdows, I always manage to get 'burn out'!

yes, I'm with you on that. Quite an unusual feature.
Brian Walbey: This is what Lisl came up with Alan, well worth a thought.
