Here pictures of most of the stained glass windows in the church. They have all been electronically corrected for perspective distortion. The sun was very bright on the day of my visit and the colours are rather too washed out.
The first is the eastern window to the south aisle, which is a fine example of Perpendicular work, with three cinquefoil lights. These are filled with Victorian glass depicting Jesus preaching. The dedication is to John Olive, AM. Vicar of this Parish for 36 years, who died February 27th 1866.
The three lancets in the eastern wall of the chancel are filled with glass by William Morris & Co., London. They depict the ascending Lord and the two patron saints of the church. They are dedicated to the memory of Winifred, wife of Rev. T W Robinson, Vicar 1920-27; Mary Anne and Elliott Smith Nutter, parents of a former church warden, Mr F J Nutter; and Thomas Mansergh Wood Robinson, son of the Rev. and Mrs Wood Robinson. The depiction of St Peter is my favourite window in the church, the greens of his cloak are wonderful.
This window in the north aisle has two lights depicting King David and St Cecilia and are dedicated to Thomas Stroud, organist for 35 years 1897 0 1932. They are by Jones and Willis, London.
Close ups of the above.
This attractive window depicting St Anne is at the west end of the south aisle. The inscription reads "To the Glory of God and in loving memory of Sarah Ann Shorrock, Matron, 1934 - 1942".
