The Crucifixion with St Catherine and St Asaph

image not available

Three-light window with a Crucifixion scene and standing figures of saints in the outer lights.

firm/studio: probably A. L. Moore

Church of St Catherine, Old Colwyn, Conwy
east wall of the chancel (window number: I)

The window replaces an earlier window of 1844 by Charles Clutterbuck, depicting Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane, the Crucifixion and Ascension.

The north and south nave windows were made in the 1880s by Cox, Sons, Buckley & Co. (one of which is signed), but this does not look like the work of the firm. It has similarities with windows by A.L. Moore.

The window was given by John Matthews Elliott of Rose Hill, Newton Heath (Manchester), in memory of his wife Elizabeth. The face of Catherine appears to a portrait, and may be a depiction of Elizabeth Elliott.
