Three years ago I wrote about the three villages which contend as the site of the martyrdom of St Wystan. Today I visited one of them - Wistanstow in Shropshire.
The guidebook for Holy Trinity, Wistanstow, describes the stained glass in the boy saint's honour:
St Wystan stands in a window as a golden haired boy in a red cloak taking the crown from his mother, who is dressed in blue, white and gold. Below is the scene of his martyrdom. Above is a group of buildings by a river which may be to investigate his home and final resting place in Repton.After that it would be churlish to point out that Wistow in Leicestershire has a much stronger claim to be the site of his martyrdom.
