The West Window: details

The stone-work of the west window is early 16th century. On the sofit of the rear arch is a panel with the monogram L.L. and opposite it, a shield of arms of Lancaster (oddly, upside down). The two ‘L’s may stand for Lancelot Lancaster, who put them there, but are likelier to celebrate the simultaneous union of the Lancasters and the Lowthers and of two branches of the Lancasters in 1494, when Lancelot’s father William Lancaster of Barton married Elizabeth Lowther, great grand-daughter of William Lancaster of Sockbridge.
