Stained glass: St John the Apostle, Torquay

St John the Apostle is the prominent church which overlooks Torquay Harbour. At night a large neon cross shines brightly from the tower. This was given in memory of Cecil Maude, the famous actor-manager by his wife, the later Mrs Beatrice Maude and dedicated by the Bishop of Exeter on 8 Sept 1955. Information here is taken from a short guide to the church.

I’d wanted to visit this church for many years as some of the windows are by Edward Burne-Jones. I wasn’t disappointed, the church has a wealth of beautiful stained glass.
