Whimsical Windows - Derby Methodist


Toby most graciously hosts the fun and educational meme Whimsical Windows-Delirious Doors, now on Mondays! We look for architectural genius in windows, doors and other places. Today it is another local landmark, the Derby Methodist Church. The building is one of many churches that flank this small (13,000) town green.

The old saying about things not made like ths anymore is not an understatement. The red brick that looks fiery before the summer sunset is one, the large Tiffany windows are another. The fabulous design of windows and doors are all about – we merely need to capture them…

Wow, Ralph - that is an amazing find! You've got those beautiful main windows, are they stained glass? Gorgeous! And then more windows of every shape and size, and a rooftop that must have been pretty complicated to design, and then a turret! coming off of that - wait, is that a real bell tower?
Oh my goodness, I'm going into architecture overload :)
Thanks for sharing it with us!!

Those windows are beautiful from the outside - one can only imagine what they are like from the inside (unless you are able to find out and share...?!)

Gorgeous windows! They must be spectacular from inside when the sun is shining.

This church was built in the mid-1800s, if I recall what someone told me once! It's the oldest of several around the Derby Green.

Lesley: I've been inside this church and may have photos. It was a night tour, so they may not be the best quality.
