Description

The glass in this window and in the east window of St Eata's Church were brought from Bacton, Herefordshire in 1811. The stained glass in this window is a memorial to Blanche Parry, a lady in waiting for Elizabeth I from 1533 until Parry's death in 1590. One panel in the central light shows her serving Elizabeth I. The left-hand and right-hand lights contain plain glass. The stained glass in the tracery lights show angels playing harps. Two of these date from the 15th century, and two were added in the mid-19th century.
