Drawing of the east window of the north aisle of West Wickham church in Kent. This window was made for Sir Henry Heydon who had the church extended and improved in the end of the 15th century. His coat of arms is the centre of the piece, above a kneeling skeleton. This window is of importance for two reasons. Firstly stained glass of this period is rarely seen in Kent churches. Secondly this window has a style of orange tinted colouring characteristic of Flemish Glass painters, who had settled in London by the late 15th century.
