Notes on Church:
Parts of Moulsoe church date from the 13th and 14th Centuries, particulalry the Nave Arcades. The tower and some unusual Decorated style windows date from the 14th century. In 1861 the Chancel was rebuilt by the architect William Burges, who was doing other work for the 2nd Baron Carrington at the time. As Lords of the Manor, the Carringtons were Patrons of Moulsoe church. The church has many monuments to members of the Carrington family, and they have an unusual and solid enclosure in the churhyard, which was also built by William Burges, around 1870.

Introduction to Stained Glass:The church has 3 stained glass windows by the makers Burlison and Grylls. For some unknown reason, the East window only has stained glass in the tracery part, which is in the form of a rose window. It is set in very heavy plate tracery stonework of the 1860s by William Burges. More...
There is also a very small fragment of orange stained glass in the tracery of the West window, which has not been included on this website.
