1979

Single-light window with Mary and Joseph above, and an angel overhead. Lilies below.

size: 45 cm (width)
artist: Edward Payne

Church of St Ffraid, Trearddur Bay, Anglesey
north wall of the nave

The window was designed and made by Edward Payne in 1979, at a cost of £337. It was given in memory of Marjorie Helen Hewer (1899–1977).

The treatment of the faces of Mary and Joseph is very different, and the head and forearm of Joseph is surely a restoration, perhaps by Drew Pritchard, who restored the windows of the church in 2001.


A drawing of the same scene, which appears to have been intended for the window, can be found on the Box Village website. The design has been compressed into the narrow opening of the window.
