Photos of Temple Guiting, Gloucestershire, St Mary's Church
Here are a few photos St Mary's church, Temple Guiting. This
is a fascinating church, juxtaposing in one location elegant Georgian architecture
with a collection of superb medieval carved heads.
The west tower and embattled nave of St Mary's
The norh porch and transept. Here you see predominently 15th century architecture, which is decidedly at odds with the remodelled nave.
Compare this classical Georgian window in the south wall of the nave with the previous views of the medieval remainders of St Mary's.
Column supporting the 15th century north porch
Three panels of late 15th century stained glass in the north wall of the nave. Nine further panels are on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York
Above the north door is this elaborate 18th century decalogue, of gilded and painted wood.
Detail of the decalogue. Decalogues usually contain the text of the Biblical Ten Commandments.
