The Chateau de la Riviere which featured last week is not all dereliction by any means. It is currently used as an equine stud farm. It also boasts its own chapel, which features some outstanding stained glass windows.

A view of part of the mightily impressive vaulted and domed ceiling of the Cathedral of Saint-Front in Perigueux.
I did my usual trick of lying the camera on the floor pointing upwards, setting the timer and hovering just out of shot to make sure that nobody steps on it. It gives a different perspective and also stops you getting a crick in your neck.

Last week I featured a window at the chateau in Azay-Le-Ferron, and this week I’ve moved on to the church.
Stained glass is nowhere near as impressive when viewed from the outside, but it’s an interesting and attractive window nonetheless, and harmonises well with the church door, I think.

Any village around here worth its salt has a medieval church, but the one at Blond – which, unusually, is fortified – is one of the more impressive. Note the thickness of the walls.

Admittedly, it’s not the windows but rather the painted ceiling that’s the main point of interest here in this image from St. Mary’s church in Beverley, East Yorkshire. However, they are quite impressive in their own right….

Stained glass again this week, and another window from the old church in the nearby village of Saint Martial sur Isop. The image also gives a good idea of the thickness of the walls.
