Stained glass

EastWindow - horwood.jpg

The East window was made by Horwoods of Mells and shows St John the Baptist baptising Jesus (left panel), The Crucifixion (centre panel) and the mystical marriage of St Katharine (St Catherine of Alexandria) where she is shown in the presence of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Christ child (right panel). This window was probably installed during the mid 1870s when significant restoration work was done under the supervision of John Loughborough Pearson.

This one light was moved to St Katharine's East Woodlands during the 1870s, but before that it was part of the window on the South side of the chancel and before that the centre panel of the 1840s East window made by William Wailes. The East window at St John's was replaced in the mid 1860s by Revd W J E Bennett and some glass formed a West window for St John's.


The window at the East end of the South Aisle shows the Blessed Virgin Mary and Christ child in one light, and St Katharine in the other.
