1952

Five-light window with two small rose lights and one large rose light above: the small left rose light contains the Llandaff diocesan coat of arms, whilst the right contains a shield with the emblem of St Margaret (a dragon with a cross lodged in its throat). The large rose light depicts Christ in majesty seated on a rainbow amidst eight rosettes containing ecclesiastical symbols, including the four symbols of the evangelists.


firm/studio: Powell & Sons (Whitefriars) Ltd.

Church of St Margaret, Roath, Cardiff
east wall of the chancel

The window replaces a former window damaged during the Second World War. The cowled monk of James Powell & Sons (Whitefriars) is shown in the lower right-hand corner of the window, below St Philip.

St Anne, St Agnes, St Edward the Confessor and St Philip were the patron saints of the daughter churches of the parish of Roath in 1952.
