I liked this more modern window, though ...
... with its wheeling crow. I haven't been able to discover who made it (though it reminds me a little of Harry Stammers' work).
After West Pennard we drove on to Shepton Mallet to have lunch.
First, though, we popped into the Church of SS Peter and Paul.
The church is famed for its wooden ceiling, carved with 350 panels of different designs, and 36 carved angels.
... until I saw this photo by Michael Garlick, from the Geograph website. Now you begin to see what old Pevsner was going on about. It's absolutely stunning.
I was also struck by the effigies of two late 13th century knights which have been placed on window ledges at the west and east end of the north aisle.
They must have a much better view where they are now ...
