The medieval glass in St Bartholomew's Church has various origins. Four panels in the church are original, and the remainder were presented to the church by Alderman Fletcher in the early 19th century. This window, in the north of the chancel (window number nII), contains nine late 15th or early 16th century diamond-shaped panes of stained glass, of which seven are shown in this photograph. The panes each feature a design of a bird with a scroll inscribed with a message in English. These short messages include "and make god thy frende", "at thy last end" and "make the poor to pray wele". The stained glass came from the collection of Alderman Fletcher.
