The Clerestory Windows

High along the north side of the chancel, above the Lady Chapel, are to be found three of the four clerestory windows shown here. The fourth (the Ambrose window) is at the same height, on the south side of the chancel.

These windows depict Simeon, the Madonna, St Ambrose and Henry Purcell. All were designed by Martin Travers.

The Ambrose and Madonna (Magnificat) windows were given by Archdeacon Philpott (the first vicar of St Andrew's) and dedicated in 1933.

The Simeon (Nunc Dimittis) window was given in memory of William Bull, sacristan, who died in 1958 and was dedicated in 1961.

The Purcell window was given as recently as 1998 by Jack and Dorothy Bloomfield in thanksgiving for 50 years of happy marriage.

Martin Travers also designed a fifth window depicting Zacharias, but to date this has not been installed.
