Windows 20 - 21


This pair of Perpendicular windows represent the completion of the rectangle of the church building programme, probably by 1480. The two windows are identical and have five lights with pointed arches and cinquefoiled heads.

A full set of mullions form ten half-lights. The three which reach towards the tops of the window arch or the sub-arches have Y-endings.

The outer pairs of lights have sub-arches which are cut across by crenellated transoms. A central third transom, of equal length, rests at a higher level on the sub-arches.

The result of all this to create 23 spaces of various shapes and sizes (plus six small triangles) which are cusped to form quatrefoils or cinquefoils. The circle at the head of the window is given an elaborate quatrefoil whose foils are themselves trefoiled.
