Three-light window illustrating acts of mercy (with reference to Matthew chapter 25) flanking Christ seated in majesty in the central light. Angels holding instruments of the Passion above in the tracery lights.

firm/studio: Clayton & Bell

Church of St Stephen, Bodfari, Denbighshire
east wall of the chancel

Given by Miss Mesham in memory of Mrs Barrett. Although some sources suggest a date of 1866 for the gift, stylistically the glass is closer to the work of the firm in the 1870s and after.
