Inside St Michael & All Angels Church, Castle Frome (E)

Recent Photograph of Inside St Michael & All Angels Church (E) (Castle Frome)

The East Window was added in the 14th century; before that there were several small windows in the Nave, and small openings in the north and south walls of the Chancel. On the right (south) side of the Chancel is a rounded arched recess, set with medieval tiles. In the window above, there is a small sculpted figure in mail, and holding in his hands what is believed to be a heart, possibly commemorating a heart burial below, of a de Lacey who was killed in the Crusades.
