The East Window
window is unique in that while all the designs in the stained glass
had been used in other churches, it is the only window in which they are
combined. It has three lights with three roundels above, all designed
by Edward Burne-Jones. To see more detailed pictures of the east window,
Chancel - the Four EvangelistsThe window on the north side of the chancel shows St. Mark and St. Matthew, byEdward Burne-Jones and Ford Madox Brown respectively.
The window on the south side has St. Luke and St. John, by William Morris and Ford Madox Brown.
The background details in these windows are muted - most stained glass
windows have landscapes of buildings in the background. The result of
this relative simplicity is that the figures are thrown into greater prominence,
dominating the picture.
South & North AislesThe window in the south aisle, dedicated to the friendship of John and Emily Miller and Eustace and Mary Smith, shows St. Mary and St. Joseph, by Burne-Jones and William Morris respectively.
Many of the windows in this church were designed by Edward Burne-Jones, but the one of Boaz and Ruth was by William Morris, and was produced by the William Morris Company. It was dedicated to Edward Knollys and is situated in the North Aisle.
