probably late 1940s

Two-light window with two standing figures of Christ. In the left-hand light he is depicted as the sower, and in the right-hand light with the chalice and host, his hand raised in blessing. Mountainous landscape behind.


artist: Alfred L. Wilkinson

Church of St Illtyd, Llantwit Fardre, Rhondda Cynon Taff
north wall of the nave

The guidebook to the church attributes this window and others to the architects Caroe & Partners. Although they may have been involved in the commission of these windows, they have all the hallmarks of the work of A.L. Wilkinson, whose work was popular in the diocese in the 1940s and 50s.

The window was given in memory of Revd David Jenkins (died 16 December 1938) by his daughter Elizabeth. The style of the window perhaps suggests a post-war date rather than a date closer to the death of David Jenkins.
