Chancel south-west window

The window was restored in 1860 for the Churchwardens. The window contains mostly old glass but some of the figures have been patched together from other windows confusing the iconography and making identification sometimes difficult.

Tracery: St James with shell; St Barnabas with book; St Andrew with saltire; unidentified; St Peter with pontifical staff; unidentified; Virgin Mary; St John; St Matthew; St Peter.

Top row: Archangel Gabriel who is shown 'feathered' an unusual but not unique feature; St George and Dragon (not old glass); a figure which has been called the Virgin of the Annunciation (by association with Gabriel opposite) but is more likely a royal saint.

Second row: an unknown saint in archbishop's dress, possibly St Blaise; St John with cup and serpent; St Clement with anchor. Third row: St Mary Magdalene with jar of spices; St Peter with pontifical staff; St John with cup.
