The majority of the stained glass in All Saints' Church dates from the 15th century. The Corporal Acts of Mercy window is the second window from the east in the north aisle, though it was previously located in the most western window of the north wall. It dates from around 1410, and shows six of the seven corporal acts of mercy: feeding the hungry, giving drink to the thirsty, offering hospitality to strangers, clothing the naked, visiting the sick, and relieving the imprisoned. The window may have been given by, or erected as a memorial to, Nicholas Blackburn; Blackburn may be the bearded man who in each panel is performing each act.
