The Chapel Window, Little Moreton Hall
The Chapel Window, Little Moreton Hall, taken 5 years ago
The chapel (SJ8358 : Little Moreton Hall, The Chapel) window originally contained plain leaded lights. The stained glass window was installed by Bishop Abraham in 1938, shortly before he gave Little Moreton Hall to the National Trust.

Little Moreton Hall is a 15th and 16th-century manor house. The earliest parts of the house were built for Cheshire landowner Sir Richard de Moreton around 1450; the remainder was constructed in various stages until around 1580. The house remained in the ownership of the Moreton family for almost five centuries.

The restored house has been owned by the National Trust since 1938 and is open to the public from March to December. It has been designated by English Heritage as a Grade I listed building, and is protected as a Scheduled Monument.
