This is a photo of one of the three Saxon stone crosses in Ilkley Parish Church.

The church also has a number of beautiful stained glass windows, in addition to the William Morris & Co window.



This is the William Warrington window dating from 1861.  Warrington’s was one of the first companies to produce stained glass in the medieval revival style and he produced glass for many English cathedrals.  Warrington, like William Morris was influenced by Pugin and made a thorough study of medieval glass.   Warrington published a book entitled The History of Stained Glass.
