Single-light window. Christopher wades through the waters with the young Christ on his shoulders, together with standing figure of Seiriol.

artist: David Evans

Church of St Seiriol, Penmon, Anglesey
east wall of the south transept

The head of Christopher and his right hand, Christ's orb, and the right hand of Seiriol with parts of his staff are medieval. These have been worked into a new window, probably by David Evans, who has imitated medieval styles in the remaining window.
