to south and north, above the arcades
of a church, enabling the roof to be filled with light,
and the rood illuminated.
Characteristic of the late-medieval perpendicular period in architecture, they are most memorable in Suffolk's greatest churches, including Long Melford, Lavenham, Blythburgh and Southwold. They are equally grand on a smaller scale at Denston and Little Waldingfield. Spectacular from the outside, they successfully accomplish Perpendicular architecture's intention to lift the eye to heaven.
