Did you know that the only church in the world that can boast all its stained-glass windows were created by Marc Chagall is All Saints in Tudeley near Tonbridge? The artist was originally commissioned in the early 1960s to commemorate the daughter of Sir Henry d’Avigdor-Goldsmid, who had died in a boating accident. Chagall took as his inspiration Psalm 8, verses 4 to 8. He then continued with the project, the last magnificent window installed in the medieval building in 1985, the year of Chagall’s death.
