Letters pray


I am a retired member and seem to spend more time in churches now.

In Leominster Priory there is a large window in the west wall which has obviously been buttressed relatively recently.

This got me to thinking about the wind resistance of large windows in cathedrals and churches and I wondered if any readers have experience of this problem. So many large modern windows are designed now, but would church windows stand up to investigation?
