Watrous, Saskatchewan –  Take a stroll up Main Street and peak into the small white All Saints Anglican Church. You’ll find stained glass windows that are said to pre-date Oliver Cromwell. It’s thought that the glass windows came from St John the Baptist Anglican Church, in Latton, Wiltshire, England. It was brought to Watrous in 2,000 pieces from England by the church’s first vicar. Fellow travel journalist ‘Wandering Carol’ visited the church with me. Here’s her story on the theories surrounding the origin of the windows. Watrous is about 110 km southeast of Saskatoon. Many come to the area to visit the mineral waters of Little Manitou Lake, about 5 km north to the north.
