Four-light window with twelve scenes from the Gospels. Left to right, ascending: the Annunciation, the Adoration of the Shepherds, the Presentation in the Temple, the Adoration of the Magi, Christ at the Wedding at Cana, Christ calling Lazarus from the grave, Christ healing a blind man, Christ in a boat stilling the storm, Christ blessing children brought by their mothers, Christ's feet are anointed by a woman while sat at a table during a meal, the Entry into Jerusalem and the Last Supper. In the tracery lights are the standing figures of Moses and Melchizedek, the dove of the Holy Sprit, angels and the figure of Christ in Majesty, in a mandorla.
