St. Mary`s Church (Fairford)

St. Mary`s is the parish church of the Gloucestershire village of Fairford.

The church was almost entirelt rebuilt in the late 15th century by the wealthy local wool merchant John Tame.

It is world famous for its wonderful collection of stained glass, which dates from the time of the church`s rebuilding. There are no fewer than 28 such windows, all of which have been painstakingly restored since 1986 by Keith Barley from York.

The windows show the Bible story, from Adam and Eve, through the life and ministry of Jesus to the Last Judgement.

There are 14 misericords in the choir stalls.
