Stained glass panel
A large rectangular central panel with the Royal Arms Of Elizabeth I in the centre, complete with garter, mantling and supporters. The supporters include the Unicorn of Scotland, added to the Royal Arms by James I. In addition remnants of the original shield show that it once displayed the Scottish Arms . This panel also includes a fifteenth century roundel, decorated with a harvesting scene. (See text file for a complete breakdown.)
Much of the stained glass at Lyme Park was originally made for St Mary's Church, Disley. Some of this glass was removed in the early nineteenth century by Thomas Legh and re-housed in the Drawing Room and Porter's Lodge at Lyme, probably during Wyatt's remodelling, which began in 1814. Other fragments may be European in origin, dating from a range of periods; it is thought that Thomas Legh may have collected these examples during his travels abroad.
Marks and inscriptions
DROIT (a painted fragment of the full motto 'Dieu Et Mon Droit' translated this reads 'God and My Right'. This would originally have been located below the full Achievement)
