A highly detailed and informative booklet written by Michael Archer which conclusively identifies the master glazier and glass painter, Abraham Van Linge (1625-41) as being responsible for the extraordinary painted window in Lydiard House and the east windows in both St. Mary's Lydiard Tregoze and St. Mary's Battersea.
