Norfolk’s churches are home to some of the highest-quality and best-preserved medieval stained glass in Britain. Panels produced in the county’s extensive and long-lasting workshops, centred in the historically important city of Norwich, can be found in some 270 buildings, including churches, museums and country houses. Moreover, recent research has revealed for the first time the original location of many of the panels now dispersed around the county.
In Stories in Glass, Paul Harley and David King reveal these treasures to a new audience. Harley’s exquisite photographs are set alongside historical and artistic explanations that illuminate the social, economic and religious background to the windows we see today. With 200 colour images, and maps showing the locations of the windows discussed, this beautifully illustrated guide will appeal to the explorer and collector alike.
