about 1880

Five-light window with ten scenes.


firm/studio: Clayton & Bell

Bangor Cathedral, Bangor, Gwynedd
south wall of the presbytery

The texts given with each scene are in Latin.

The window was given by Lord Penrhyn at the time of the restoration of the cathedral by Gilbert Scott, who recommended Clayton & Bell for the work.

As well as the two windows by Clayton and Bell in the presbytery, the firm also undertook painted decoration of the roof and walls. Despite being renewed in 1903, the wall paintings have since been removed.
