about 1858

Single-light window.

Church of St Mary, Dolgellau, Gwynedd
north wall of the nave

Perhaps by Clayton & Bell, and if so an example of their work quite different from their usual animated style as found in the three south windows.

A memorial to William White of Glasynfryn, Bangor (died 1858); H. Weir White was Rector of Dolgellau 1831-66, when the church was restored.

The figure is based on John 19:17, which also inspired Station II of the Stations of the Cross.
