    I thought I would post some pics again as we visited this church today near Dorchester with the son and daughter in law.
    The etchings were done by Sir Laurence Whistler from 1955 to 1985 and are unbelievably intricate.
    TE Lawrence (of Arabia) is buried in the cemetery.

    This is an odd one (not particularly clear) it is called 'Forgiveness' and is supposed to be about Judas, as it showed someone hanging it was put on the outside.

      Hi @strongylodon ,.
      I remember going there years ago, it's beautiful.
      it's a shame the first picture isn't clearer. That's the one with the etchinngs of a spitfire and Salisbury cathedral isn't it.
