Three-light window. Christ ascends with angels at either side and disciples (including Mary) below. Musical angels in the, with the dove of the Holy Spirit in the uppermost tracery light.

artist: Henry Hughes

Church of St Tysilio and St Mary, Meifod, Powys
east wall of the chancel

Signed H. Hughes London. As the window not signed with the name of the firm with which Henry Hughes is associated, perhaps this is an example of the independent work he continued to do even after forming a successful partnership with Thomas Ward in 1857.

Text: 'I go to prepare a place for you' (John 14:2).
