1864

Seven-light window.

technique: stained glass


St Asaph Cathedral, St Asaph, Denbighshire
east wall of the chancel

The window replaces work of 1800 by Francis Eginton, the central panels moved to the church at Llandegla. The heraldic shields were retained in the cathedral and reset in the south transept. Many further windows were made by Ward & Hughes for the cathedral, and the architect, Gilbert Scott, worked with the studio at other places nearby, notably at the Church of St Thomas, Rhyl.
