Winchester Cathedral: Winchester, England

The original huge west window in this church, one of the largest cathedrals in England, was deliberately smashed by troops during the English Civil War in 1642. When the monarchy was restored in 1660, the broken pieces were gathered up and put together randomly, with no attempt to recreate the original images.
