Butterfield Altar Frontals

In December 2012, Dr Ayla Lepine of the Courtauld Institute (now of Yale University), brought a group from the Victoria and Albert Museum to see the church and the altar frontals designed by William Butterfield.  This is a video of the part of her talk, where she explains the significance and value of these fine, but sadly damaged pieces of ecclesiastical needlework.
