1864

Three-light window with standing figures. Christ is depicted as the Good Shepherd, holding a staff and a lamb, flanked by David, richly dressed as a bishop in the left-hand light, and Tydecho in the right-hand light with a plain staff and book.


firm/studio: Heaton, Butler & Bayne

Church of St Tydecho, Llanymawddwy, Gwynedd
east wall of the chancel (window number: I)

The design is attributed to R.T. Bayne by William Waters.

A relatively early date for the depiction of Welsh saints, the choice perhaps influenced by the interests of the scholar and antiquarian Revd John Williams, who was rector at St Tydecho's in the mid-nineteenth century.
