It is believed that the current building of Cheltenham Minster replaced the Saxon church in the 8th century, making it the oldest surviving medieval building in Cheltenham. Cheltenham Minster Rose Window is a stunning masterpiece of medieval art and craftsmanship. Located in the north transept of the Cheltenham Minster, the window is positioned at an angle to create a dynamic effect. Created by William Wales in 1879, the window is a testament to the skill and artistry of the craftsmen, with its intricate tracery dating back to the medieval period.


Its design is thought to commemorate Catherine of Alexandria, who may have been put to death on a spiked wheel. In the centre of the window, you'll find a lamb pierced with a sword, which represents the sacrifice Jesus made when he died on the cross. This beautiful piece is not only visually stunning but also carries great symbolic meaning. The words inscribed in the window only add to its spiritual significance, making it a must-have for collectors of cathedral art.
