1935 and about 1987

Three-light window composed of two or three separate commissions by different makers. The left-hand light shows Christ with a shepherd's staff and holding a lamb, with the text 'Feed my lambs' (John 21:15). The right-hand light is later and attempts to mimic the style of the left-hand light, depicting Christ with three children and the text 'Suffer little children to come unto me' (Luke 18:16). The centre light depicts a red dragon on a blue shield amid oak leaves.


firm/studio: probably Shrigley & Hunt

Christ Church, Prestatyn, Flintshire
south wall of the south aisle

The left-hand light was erected in 1935 in memory of W.P. Richardson (died 1933), headmaster of St Chad's School. It is reminiscent of the work of Shrigley & Hunt. The right-hand light is dedicated to his successor Duncan N. Payne (died 1986). The inscription on the central light reads: 'To commemorate the close association of St Chad's School with this church 1905-1975'.
