St. Mary’s Stained Glass Windows

St. Mary’s has some good Victorian stained glass, most notably the East Window, whose nine panels depict the life of  Christ starting with The Annunciation (bottom left) and concluding with the Descent from the Cross (top right). The window is dedicated to the memory of Lamplugh W Wickham of Chestnut Grove who was a great benefactor to our church.

The Annunciation

The first church to be built on this site in the early 19th Century was designated a “Chapel of Ease”within the ancient parish of  Bramham. In 1851 it was Considerably enlarged and in the following year became a Parish Church Instead of a “Chapelry”. Work commenced on the present Church in 1872 and was finally completed in 1884.

For a number of years the churchyard has been managed using the principles of the “Living Churchyard” project, under the auspices  of the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and the York Diocese.
