Yarnton, St Bartholomew

Glass of Continental and English origin given by Alderman Fletcher in 1813.The only indigenous glass is in the four N traceries. Delightful little birds in a small N chancel window of c.1500 whose subject matter suggests that they once resided in an inn — each bird has a cup and scroll with inscribed comments such as "who blayth this ale . make God thy friend . . ." and "ye: shall: praye: for: the: fox" (from the popular Funeral of the Fox). In the chancel E window are two six-winged cherubim on wheels, a composite C15 Virgin Mary, and St Thomas with spear (no photos here). In the N nave windows, panels include a Virgin and rather chubby Child (Netherlandish, C15).
