probably mainly early sixteenth century

Roundel of medieval glass set at the base of a three-light window. Includes a female face, a further very faded face, a hand holding a closed book and a bare foot, perhaps in water.

Church of St Mary, Treuddyn, Flintshire
west end of the nave

The foot may belong to a figure of Christopher, who is often depicted crossing a river with the Christ-child on his shoulders.
