Attributed to Heaton Butler & Bayne in The Buildings of Wales: Powys but in fact clearly by the firm of Ward & Hughes.

Given by friends in memory of Anne Pughe (died 1874) and her daughter Maria Jane Pughe (died 1872). Both were benefactors of the new church and school. The window and its neighbour in the south wall were both present when the church was re-opened 25 October 1877.
