Notes on Window:
Stained Glass was fitted in this window of the N Chapel in 1894. In 1983 the 3 arches from the Church were walled up, to form the St Mary's Centre, and the glass from the 2 main lights was moved to 2 lightboxes in the Chancel. On this website they have all been shown together, as they would originally have looked. More...
