St Thomas’s

Like many who visit Salisbury, my focus was on the cathedral.  However I did stop off at another church which is definitely worth a visit.

The sign above does not disappoint!  Although I haven’t read Thomas Hardy’s Jude the Obscure, perhaps I should take this as motivation to do so.

The stained glass is lovely in close up.  It isn’t clear why this one window is plain.  It could be that no funder could be found at the time the church was built, or the original stained glass was damaged and money was not available to replace it.

The side walls and their decoration are being well preserved at the moment, and hopefully will not be damaged and need replacement!

My favourite sculpture is this little angle, who sits in the rafters and protects all in the church (or watches to keep up with the gossip?)
