Stained Glass, Adam and Eve, Edward Burne-JonesA delightful feature of the church is the series of three large windows along the south side of the nave, which flood the space with light. Uncoloured glass admits this light and contrasts with rich colours in the three triptychs: the Sermon on the Mount by Dante Gabriel Rossetti nearest the altar, St. Paul preaching at Athens in the centre window by William Morris, and Christ Blessing the Children by Edward Burne-Jones in the third window.

 

Capturing afternoon sunshine, the rose

window above the west door depicts scenes

from the Creation that include a richly

coloured Adam and Eve that is considered

to be one of the best small scale designs

in stained glass by William Morris.
