The East Window: The Ascension

The stonework of the east window is 1330. In 1910 William Fothergill Winn of Bowerbank presented the marble floor of the sanctuary, while the stained glass of the memorial window to Colonel Parkin of Sharrow Bay, dates from 1913 and depicts the Ascension and Christ as the good shepherd.

On the wooden panelling below the window (beneath a brass plate to Thomas Hodson) are the initials L.D, and the date 1609, the year after Lancelot Dawes, then of Barton Kirke, became vicar. The communion rails are said to be mid- to-late 17th century, as is the bishop’s chair in the vestry.
