west gable

The window was commissioned by steel owner Arthur Gilbertson in 1895. It was removed in around 1995 when the church was sold. It has been in storage until recently and the centre panel is now on display in Pontardawe Heritage and Visitor Centre. The rest of the window has been dismantled and is undergoing restoration (2018) with a view to eventually displaying the complete window at the centre.

The window has been attributed to Robert Newbery, and, if correct, would represent one of his earliest windows in Wales.
