Church of St Theodore, Ynysddu, Caerphilly
east wall of the chancel

The central lights and upper tracery lights were made by Celtic Studios in 1955, and the outer lights were added later, with separate dedications, probably in the 1970s or 80s.

The image of Theodore of Tarsus was based on a statuette in the church that was given by a former parishioner (Information kindly provided by Marian Dew).
