late fifteenth century - early sixteenth century

Three-light window mainly filled with coloured and stained glass fragments. Includes several partial figures, including the lower part of a large barefoot figure, a large haloed mitre, and parts of an annunciation scene.

Church of St Dyfnog, Llanrhaeadr-yng-Nghinmeirch, Denbighshire
west end of the north nave

A fragmentary date is probably 1508, although the collected fragments may be from more than one window. It is likely that much of the glass was originally set in the east window of the south nave.
