The Victoria and Albert Museum

Superb examples of stained glass of all ages - often at eye level ! Much is in storage but most of the panels on display can be seen here. More of the V & A's stained glass as well as more information on all of these panels can be seen on its website. It also has more panels at the Ely Stained Glass Museum.

Links with the building from which some of the panels originated are made here - for example the Daniel window at the St Chapelle - and vice-versa to the collection here
