Introduction to Stained Glass:St Dunstan's has fragments of medieval glass in 3 windows. Otherwise, the 4 largest windows with Stained Glass were all made by Clayton and Bell in the 1860s and 1870s. The only other window, to celebrate the Millennium of St Dunstan was made in 1988 by Michael Farrar Bell, the successor to Clayton and Bell. More...
The four 19th century windows all have a strong contrast between the main colours in the windows and the colours of the faces of people portrayed. They have been adjusted as far as possible to show as much detail as possible across each window.
