Long Description:
Stained glass windows in St Michael & All Angels' church, Church, Broughton.

The east window is a fine example of the 'Decorated' style- by Hardman (1904) it includes an 'orchestra' of angels playing various instruments.

"The first church was built in about 1100, the font and pillars of the nave remain from that period. There was major rebuilding in the 14th century, but this seems to have been interrupted by the Black Death in 1348-50.

In the south wall of the chancel is a small trefoil window set off-centre to a decorated style recess in the outer wall. This appears to be a 'sepulchral' recess perhaps intended as the resting place of the person who was meeting the cost of the 14th century rebuilding. It was apparently never used - so perhaps the individual concerned was a victim of the Black Death."
