1870 and 1875

Five-light window with the Crucified Christ in front of a mandorla. Mary Magdalene at his feet, Mary and John, Longinus and other disciples/followers in attendance. Roundel heads of the saints Peter and David above.

firm/studio: Bell & Almond

Church of St Peter, Lampeter, Ceredigion
east wall of the chancel (window number: I)

The glass in the upper, and perhaps the lower, parts of the window were installed in 1870 in time for the opening of the church, and were executed by Bell & Almond. The pictorial scenes were added in 1875, probably also by the firm. If so, this represents the largest known work by the partnership in Wales.
