Tudeley, Kent

Tudeley is a small village near Tonbridge Kent in South East England. It is the location of All Saints' church, the only church in the world that has all its windows in stained glass designed by Marc Chagall. The East window was commissioned by Sir Henry and Lady D'Avigdor-Goldsmid in memory of their daughter Sarah who died in a boating accident in 1963. The other windows were added later, the final ones being installed in 1985, the year of Chagall's death.
