Holy Trinity, Badgeworth, Glos - 2

Realisation dawned that the north aisle is a treasure of the C14, the west and north windows with superb double ballflower decoration (medieval glass remains in the tracery), the roof with small standing figures, bosses and remarkable detailing of the tie beams with small shafts in wood. The nave roof is also in part medieval and both roofs have ceilures over the east bays. Disappointing east wall to the aisle with a large plain Perp window, which cannot be the original design. Outside again in the rain we walked around to see the exterior of the aisle; remarkably the windows have the same ball flower decoration outside and there is a very ornate doorway.
