Belton House - Part 4: The Church 6/7

On the South wall of the church is this window, a memorial to several members of the Brownlow and Cust families.

 

To the right of the window is a hanging wall monument with putti top and bottom (a putto is a stone cherub), to William Brownlow Esquire, d 1726 aged 27. Monument is signed by Stanton & Horsenaile and to the left is a hanging wall monument, to Alice, Lady Brownlowe (d 1721, aged 62) relict of Sir John Brownlowe of Belton. It was Alice who had the chancel of the church rebuilt.

Oh yes, the putti caught my eyes at once - it is a wonderful- rich church inside with all the monuments, stained glass windows, flower bunches, and I like how the sun light is streaming in through the open door and the windows on a sunny day! Has been one part of the window below damaged?
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine. It does look a though the window might have been damaged.

The pews are so modest considering..
Brian Walbey: That is probably where the proletariat sat Chris.
I like this wall very much Brian....you have captured such detail of the sculptures under difficult light flowing in from the windows....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter.
Love the lighting here, it's very restful.
Brian Walbey: It is that sort of church Tom, mind you there are a lot of the family "at rest" in it smile
