Stained Glass Image of the Day: West Kirk, Alford

West Parish Church, a mile or so outside Alford, is the nearest church to my studio. Although I've driven past thousands of times I've never actually been inside. I was fascinated to see this image on Flickr as I find very difficult to envisage what a window looks like from the inside.

On initial inspection, the window looks relatively modern, but I'm not even going to hazard a guess as to a studio or date until I've had a closer look.

The church is built on an old ecclesiastical site, with records showing a 12th century church was located here. The current church was built at the start of the 19th century and it was later extended. It closed for worship recently and is now in private ownership.
