The seams had melted jagged, they were crooked like a spine
The glass was rough like hands of man against the hands of time
And there was bloodstains in the red and there were teardrops in the blue
He said: It may not be the best but it’s the best that I can do
The chapel fell to silence, it was more than just surprise
As the monstrosity of color slid its tongue across their eyes
And they shivered from exposure like babies born again
Cause in every pane of glass was all the joy and pain of man . . .

ST. Mark's in Atlanta is even prettier on cloudy days for some reason #stainedglass#cathedral#pride
Even in its ruined state you can see the interiors would have been quite serious! Described as a fashionable fortified residence it took a 20-month siege to before she surrendered 400 years ago! #theydontmakethemliketheyusedto
• Norwich, St. George Tombland •
With all its winding, narrow streets, Norwich offers some spectacular views of its parish churches. In this respect it reminds me of York, but slightly more open planned with greater visibility. One of the first churches I visited in Norwich a few years ago was the church of St. George Tombland. This view was one of my first experiences apporaching a beautiful flint church and seeing one with my own eyes. It holds a special place in my heart. I do apologise for the lack of historical description I'm providing in these posts over the weekend - I'm in 'holiday mode' and posting whenever I get a moment to sit down with WiFi. Normal caption content will resume when I return to Yorkshire 👌🏻
Oranges and lemons say the bells of St. Clement’s.
Dating all the way back to 604 AD, the land that St Paul’s Cathedral stands upon has been consecrated ground for a very long time. With three different predecessors, the cathedral’s previous iteration was destroyed in the Great Fire of London in 1666 and designed by Sir Christopher Wren, an architect instrumental in rebuilding the city.
