about 1864

Three-light window. The main lights depict the Crucifixion at the centre, the Adoration of the Magi on the left, and the Entombment on the right. The upper tracery roundel has Christ in Majesty at the centre with the four evangelists, and angels in the left and right trefoil lights. Below the central panel is the Last Supper. There are pairs of half-figures in the foliate roundels above and below the main panels of the side lights. Those at the top are angels but the identity of those at the bottom is not clear; they are probably prophets, although they have haloes, which are usually suggestive of saints.
