Stained Glass Window, Bedford Chapel, St Michael's, Chenies
Stained Glass Window, Bedford Chapel, St Michael's, Chenies
This elaborate and finely realised stained glass window is in the northern wall of the Bedford Chapel which forms the north chapel of St Michael's Church in Chenies. This chapel is the private mausoleum of the Russell family, hereditary Earls and latterly Dukes of Bedford. The chapel is not open to the public but some of the fine funerary monuments - and stained glass such as this - can be glimpsed through the glassed-in arches between the nave of the church proper and this chapel. This window is about half-way along the northern wall of the chapel.
