Monday windows …….

My Monday windows were taken at All Saints Church at Minstead, a small village in the New Forest, Hampshire.

This old church is very unusual, as it looks partly like a house from the outside, and it even has an indoor fireplace with a chimney.  Apparently one of the side rooms was reserved for the rich families of the village, who could sit round the fire during the church service to keep warm.   They were also brought hot food during the service!

There are also lovely stained glass windows in the church, dating from the 19th century.
