The lovely St George’s church at Kelmscott was just a short walk from Kelmscott Manor, where William Morris spent his summers. Morris was known for his love of ancient buildings and must have loved the fact that the church had remained unaltered since the middle of the 16th century.
As you walk through the door into St Georges you see the Font, which is from either the late 12th or early 13th century.
The window has a stained glass panel of St George slaying the dragon which dates from about 1430.
It is wonderful to think this window has been here since then.
