The beautiful old "meeting house" at the head of the village green, with its exquisite white spire and its pillard pulpit and windows of "common" glass, purpling with age, was the property of the Methodists -- which in some manner I could not then understand (and do not clearly yet) was always a source of resentment in our congregation.
The troops was led by Franquet d'Arras, a famous "/pillard/," robber of God and man.
It was a rare example of a northern cloister with arched and pillard openings not intended for glazing, and the delicately-wrought foliage of the capitals seemed still to carry the very touches of the chisel.
