WINDOW ARCHES

This photo of the south clerestory of Bressingham Church in Norfolk shows the use of stone over window arches for creating a strong pattern.  Most of the upper part of this church was rebuilt by Sir Roger Pilkington some time just before 1527.  His initials and the year appear on the outside of the church on the north clerestory.

A similarly strong pattern to the one above in stone is created here in Tudor brick on the clerestory of the church at Walsham-le-Willows in Suffolk.

Below is a picture of a modern house at Southwold in Suffolk which has strongly patterned window arches.  Like the example at Walsham-le-Willows, the effect is created by the use of red brick, but here the pattern is made bolder by the contrasting whiteness of the walls.
