St. Giles

Window of one rectangular light.

This window depicts St. Giles protecting a doe from an arrow which has struck his hand instead. In his left hand he is holding a structure in his left hand. A coat of arms is seen in the lower panel.

‘Except the Lord build the house they labour in vain that build it.’
‘Nil Conscribe Sibi’
