This is just sickening:
A church's Elizabethan Tudor Rose window has been smashed to bits by thieves just a fortnight after clergymen proudly showed it off to the Prince of Wales.

(I'm in the process of re-doing all my photos from the negatives, so at some point I'll have some nicer and bigger versions of the church photos up.)
