St. Mary, Kempley, Gloucestershire.
This jewel like stained glass panel is from the tiny east window. It is by C.E. Kempe and shows the Virgin and Child attended by angels. The angels have peacock feathers for wings, this is a distinguishing feature of Kempe windows.

Holy Innocents, Highnam, Gloucestershire.

The bust of Isabella Gambier Parry.

Thomas Gambier Parry built this church as a memorial to his wife Isabella who died in 1848. The couple had only two out of six children survive to adulthood, hence the dedication to Holy Innocents. One of those children, the composer Hubert Parry, wrote later that, on the day the church was finished, 'when all the guests had gone to bed and the new church stood gaunt and silent under the moon, father made his way there alone. He carried in his arms the bust and placed it in the niche in the chapel where it now stands.' #holyinnocentschurch #highnamchurch #henrywoodyer #churches #churchesofinstagram #church #churchcrawling #gothicchurch #gloucestershire #victorianarchitecture #victorian #victorianchurch #victoriangothic #thomasgambierparry #hubertparry #gloucestershirechurches #gothicarchitecture #medieval #medievalchurch #medievalarchitecture #oldchurch #oldchurches #architecture #architecturalphotos #architectureporn #architecturalphotography #gloucestershire #gloucestershirechurches
