Three stained glass windows, each of two lights, with tracery above, and an accompanying wall-mounted, nowy-headed brass plaque. The plaque has a rubricated Greek cross within a laurel wreath at its centre. The inscription is incised and painted black. The windows are set in the East and South walls of a chapel-like area at the top of the South aisle of the church. The East window's main lights depict St Michael on the left and St Gabriel on the right, with Christian symbols in the tracery above. The lefthand of the window in the South wall depicts St George to the left, and St Alban to the right, and there is an angel holding a scroll in a quatrefoil above. The righthand of the window in the South wall depicts St Peter to the left, and StNicholas to the right, and there is an angel holding a scroll in a quatrefoil above. A text runs along the bottom of each window, and on the scrolls of the angels.
