second circumnavigation of the globe after Ferdinand Magellan.

The merchants engaged in overseas trade were greatly encouraged by their government, therefore The Guinea Company and The East India Company (EIC), were established during this period. Until the eighteenth century, the British established colonies in the east of North America. Governor and Company of Merchants of London trading with the East Indies formed company a monopoly on trade with all countries east of the Cape of Good Hope and west of the Straits of Magellan. It become the first golden age in British colonial history.

Slimmer stone mullions (stone window dividers) which allowed for greater area in stained glass use in order to allow a penetrating entrance for the building. In addition to the towering double-sided inclined roof which also will be two or three huge stone brick masonry chimney. The tendency was to obtain ornamental motifs in decoration, by the application of features on a small scale, the tracery of windows being repeated on the walls as blank panelling and battlements being carved along the cornices.

Owing to the great building era that had preceded this period, ecclesiastical work consisted mostly of restorations or additions.

Our service is dedicated to the magnificent features at that time and try to represent Tudor spirit.
