It is generally agreed that much of the glass belongs to the
14th century, and it was probably fashioned by a Coventry
craftsman. It is suggested that the various sections of the
glass were in different windows of the church at first, and
were assembled in their present form in the 19th century.
There are coloured fragments of mutilated windows, which
are surrounded by canopies of the 'Decorated' type, with
other canopies supporting kneeling angels in the two outer
lights. It is the central light which contains the finest glass of
all, portraying three figures from the Jesse window of
Merevale Abbey. Looking closely, we can see Asa holding
a sword, whilst above him is Jechonias with a scroll bearing
his name, and he is surmounted by David, who is seen
playing his harp. All three figures have vine-leaves and
clusters of grapes intertwined about them.
The uppermost section portrays St. Margaret repulsing a
dragon with a cross-shaft. On either side of the central light
there are two lights displaying figures of saints and set in
leaded quatrefoils. It has been suggested that these
formerly filled the recticular tracery of the east window of the north aisle. The topmost panel of each light depicts a
censing angel. Underneath these there is shown St. John
the Divine, St. Christopher, and a mutilated figure in the lefthand light; whilst in the right-hand light there are the figures of St. Paul, St. Bartholomew, and St. James the Greater. The colours of the robes of the figures and of the
backgrounds, namely reds, yellows and blues, suggest the
mellow richness of the renowned Fairford glass.
