highly decorated reredos altar piece St Chad Church Kirkbymoorside, North Yorkshire Engalnd

The Reredos altar piece and above it the east stained glass window. The beautiful Reredos is an early 17th century work from the altar of Gilling Castle. The four angels on the Reredos and some extra decorative details were designed and made by the sculptor John Bunting.

 

A collection of medieval glass has been nicely assembled in the east window above the altar - a really interesting find on my part as I continue to explore North Yorkshire in 'retirement!
