about 1856

One of a pair of two-light windows with a main scene in a medallion and angel below in each light, following the theme of resurrection.

The first window depicts Christ with a kneeling figure and standing warrior angel, phoenix rising from the flames above and angel below (holding a cross and in the guise of the virtue Hope) with the text 'O my people I will open your graves' (Ezekiel 37:12). In the adjacent light the figure of Christ accompanies a figure, perhaps Ezekiel, walking through the valley of dry bones. A peacock above, another symbol of resurrection, and an angel below (blindfolded and holding a rod and crown, in the guise of the virtue Faith) with the text 'Can these bones live?' (Ezekiel 37:3).

Both windows have a miniature Christ in Majesty in the small light at the apex of the window.

A further three-light window by Clutterbuck was situated in the east wall of the north aisle, but has largely been lost, with a few pieces still remaining. See Mostyn Lewis, Stained Glass in North Wales, 1970, p. 86.
