Two-light window depicting standing figures with detailed landscape backgrounds.

technique: stained glass


Church of St Peter, Lampeter, Ceredigion
north wall of the nave

The window is attributed to W. Clarke, the architectural sculptors, Llandaff, in The Buildings of Wales: Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion. However, it is doubtful that the firm actually made stained glass, and it may be that they simply supplied the window, which was made by another studio. The stained glass has some similarities with the work of Charles Powell, and his son Christopher Charles Powell, but is more richly executed than most of their other windows in Wales.

The window was given in memory of Roderick Evans JP (died 13 April 1924), his wife Maria (died 11 January 1922) and their youngest daughter, Charlotte (died 24 February 1922).
