Description
The window is a memorial to the Fardell family, Father, son and grandson. The grandson was killed in action on St. Georges Day 1915. It consists of mainly translucent, almost clear, glass with two figures, one of St George killing the dragon and the other of St. Hubert. There are also coats of arms of Fardell, of England and an unknown one. Unfortunately the two lights are split behind a moument and cannot be viewed or photographed as a single window
