about 1914
Two-light window with a fisherman hauling up his nets in the left-hand light, and Ruth working in the fields in the right-hand light.

technique: stained glass

firm/studio: possibly Robert J. Newbery

Church of St Oudoceus, Llandogo, Monmouthshire
north wall of the nave

Given in memory of Henry (d.1904) and Lavinia Bett (d.1914).

Texts: 'I will make you fishers of men' and 'Let me gather and glean after the reapers'. The King James version actually reads 'let me glean and gather after the reapers' is a rare departure from the strict quotation of the Authorised biblical text for this date.
