There is much stained glass in the New Church, all from the post-war period- all earlier glass was destroyed by bombing during the Second World War,

The glass in the Nave has depictions of scenes from the life of Christ, the sanctuary glass depictions of the Resurrection and the north transept is a large work depicting Christ in glory.

All the windows except the one in the north transept, were designed by Francis Skeat of Harpenden to replace the lost Victorian glass, at a cost of £9, 540. Re-dedication took place in 1957.

The memorial window in the north transept was designed and executed by WJ Carter Shepherd, assisted by EJ Dilworth and AS Burcombe.

From here you can take a virtual tour of the glass of St Mary's, with photographs and accompanying brief commentary.

Please note the photos are quite large and thus the pictures may take a while to appear in your browser.
