Royd's Chapel detail

Royd's Chapel detail, originally uploaded by fotofacade.

Albert Hudson Royds is incorporated into the scheme as the Master mason here with his hand directing the works.

At Saint Edmund is a complete scheme of stained glass (with some missing lights) by Lavers, Barraud & Westlake. It is fascinating to know that Henry Holiday (who was behind the frieze at Rochdale Town Hall) also designed for them. Pevsner says that the scheme isn't quite up to the whole concept and some windows do play a secondary role to the strong masonic theme - but - there are some real gems - especially in the artwork - which jump out from the others
