A shrapnell and shard window

      This rather modern looking window in a very, very old Suffolk church was apparently remanufactured by the local parishioners from salvaged pieces of glass that originally came from the original old and shattered stained glass window.
     I think even John Piper would pay homage to the concept and full marks for the recycling aspect too, old becomes modern and then very modern. It's a pity it has to have wire mesh on the outside to spare it from vandalism but I suppose that's a statement on modern times.
      You can imagine the thought process from a knuckle dragger, 'look at that really, really old window lets put a brick through it. Great idea'.
      Says it all really.
