Rivenhall church

Some remarkable glass imported to the church during the nineteenth century. The centrepiece is the east window with its four medallions of twelfth century French glass from the church of Chenu (30km north west of Tours). There are also two archbishops, c.1200, a C13 panel of Robert Lemaire. The Adoration of the Magi and a bishop in the left lancet date from c.1530 and may well have come from Chenu as well :-

Also in the church on north and south sides are some roundels - from Chenu as well?
