Well done David, a good clear photo of very artistic stained glass windows. Certainly worth looking at.

As Mick says there must be a story behind the image of the Dutch milkmaid, the church on the left & the river bridge on the right, anyone know ?

This is just down from the hospital, I noticed the window last week as I drove past.It's the education centre for WWL NHS. If you look at it on street view (which I have just done) the view from the front of Kensington House is from 2015, but move slightly up the road its an old picture from when the work was started in 2013, almost like a virtual before and after on the same shot! Would love to know more about the window.

I went in that building to be measured for my nurses uniform in the
late seventies...and that is a lovely
shot David,you must have plenty of patience to wait for the right moment
to show the lovely colours.
