The light for Holy Cross Day (14 September) in the cloister of Chester Cathedral. Another photo in the gallery

Chester Cathedral cloister was glazed in the 1920s at the suggestion of the Dean, Frank Bennett, whose son proposed the theme of the Church’s year. The work was funded by memorials of 147 local people; and now, for the first time, a full photographic record, with commentary, of the 34 windows (130 lights) has been made by Jane Brooke (Vice-Dean), Nicholas Fry, Barry Ingram, Elizabeth Moncrieff, and James Thomson. Blessed be God in his Angels and in his Saints: A record of the windows of the cloister of Chester Cathedral may be printed in future. It is currently available as a PDF at chestercathedral.com/gallery-of-saints/ Another photo in the gallery
