The Stained Glass in All Saints Church

All Saints Church, Middleton Cheney, is home to an important and beautiful group of stained glass windows by Morris & Co., added between 1865 and 1893 as part of the church’s restoration by George Gilbert Scott. Together, the windows offer a uniquely illuminating gallery of the work and development of Morris & Co. at this time; and individually include two of the finest stained glass windows of this or any period to survive in England: The East Window, by William Morris, Edward Burne-Jones, Philip Webb, Ford Madox Brown and Simeon Solomon; and the West Window, by Burne-Jones alone.


This book – the first dedicated account of the stained glass of All Saints Church – was made possible through the generous support of the Heritage Lottery Fund. As well as a comprehensive account of the windows and the artists responsible, it includes an architectural history of the church, a short history of stained glass and Morris & Co., and a theological commentary on the windows of All Saints. The book is richly illustrated with new photographs commissioned as part of this project.
