Stained Glass of Emneth St Edmund Norfolk

This large Fenland church is predominantly Perpendicular in design. Although it underwent an extensive Victorian renovation it still retains features from earlier periods including: its Early English chancel, a superb roodscreen,  a late 15th century font and impressive monuments to the Hewers’ family. The church has retained some small panels of medieval glass in the north aisle tracery lights however, the glass is mainly Victorian  and includes work by William Wailes  and Clayton & Bell. The contrast in styles and colours adopted by these two popular firms is apparent in particular between the east window (a typical  Wailes’ design) and Clayton & Bell’s work.
