St Michael, Abenhall

St Michael, Abenhall

St Michael’s, Abenhall is a small 14th century church about a mile from Mitcheldean. There is some good stained glass there, including mediaeval fragments, but most striking is the new (2012) two-light window by Tom Denny. It celebrates the ancient tradition of the iron and coal mining in the Forest of Dean.

Men can be seen working in the bowels of the earth, and the forest glades are above. One of Denny’s best, surely, as you can see from this detail.
