Founder's Window

Designer: G. E. Street

Maker: Clayton & Bell


South wall of the tower

St Peter's, Bournemouth

Left: The whole window, showing (top to bottom) King Solomon, the eleventh-century Norman Bishop of Winchester, Walklyn, and the Rev. Bennett himself on the left side; and Aaron, Archbishop Lanfranc, and another medieval ecclesiast from Normandy, Ranulf Flanbard, on the right. Right: Closer view of the four post-Biblical "founders of the church." Here, G. E. Street makes sure that the Rev. Bennett, whose client he had been for many years, is given a proud heritage. Bennett holds a model of St Peter's with its tall spire
