The stained glass in the east window of the south aisle dates from around 1470, and was restored by the York Glaziers Trust in 1973. In the central light is shown the Crucifixion; the image of the Virgin and Child below is known as Virgo Lactans, or the Nursing Madonna. To the left of the Crucifixion is the Virgin Mary, and on the right is St John. Below, on either side of the Virgin and Child, are two bishops: Thomas Becket on the left, with a sword through his mitre, and perhaps St Augustine on the right.
