Stained Glass of St Mary's Church, Burnham Deepdale
This church is believed to have served the coastal village of Burnham Deepdale since the 11th century. The architecture is dominated by an Anglo Saxon round tower, studded with round headed slit windows. Both the nave and chancel are of late Early English origins however, it has been subject to three restorations over the 18th/ 19th centuries.
Although the restorations have detracted from some aspects of the church it retains two important treasures: its Norman Font and its stained glass .
The outstanding Norman font is made of Barnack stone from Rutland. What makes it so special is that it is carved with “The twelve labours of the month.” The second treasure is its stained glass collection which includes beautiful pieces from both the Medieval & Victorian eras. The collection includes work by Henry Holiday and many children’s favourite piece :”The Man in the Moon”
