    Cheshire Cat

    by sandysmith Updated Nov 3, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Some of the buildings have adopted an Alice in Wonderland link - for example this Cheshire Cat was spotted on a barn as we drove through the village. Not the original one - that is purported to be a carving of a grinning cat on the church tower at Grappenhall - another cheshire village some 3 miles away.

    Inside All Saints Church on the right hand side is the Daniell Chapel which contains one of the best known features of the church', the Lewis Carroll Memorial Window. To mark the centenary of his birth Carroll enthusiasts from all over the world subscribed to a memorial fund, which resulted in this striking and unusual stained glass window, dedicated in 1935. The window depicts a Nativity scene above which a number of symbolic panels represent various facets of the writer's life - the wheatsheaf of Cheshire, the arms of Rugby School and Christ Church, Oxford, and mathematical instruments symbolising his academic career. The small panels along the bottom though are the most endearing with scenes from Alice in Wonderland.
