Rose window, St Mary's Church, Cheltenham
The window is 14th century with Victorian glazing. It is presumed to commemorate the martyrdom of St Catherine of Alexandria, put to death on a wheel, and remembered every 5th November when 'catherine-wheel' fireworks are set off. One of the leaded panels is apparently fitted the wrong way round.
