Window 16


This window is uniform in style and the theme is distinctly botanical.
The tracery under each sub-arch resembles a plant with three giant leaves growing from a stalk formed by one of the mullions.

The central part of the tracery again gives the impression of a tree or exotic plant but this time the stem stands on top of the central light whose mullions take on the role of the plant's roots.

These botanical descriptions may seem rather fanciful but they are inescapable. Edward Freeman, commenting on Flowing tracery in the 1850s states that it is "impossible to avoid the belief that a direct imitation of vegetable life had great influence on its production".
