This west window, originally dating from the late C13 was badly damaged in the first world war. In style it seems to belong to the variety that featured a large single layer of openings with long 'spokes' forming the wheel with trefoils round the perimeter, as can also be seen at Angers and Strasbourg cathedrals.

It was again badly damaged in a storm in 2017 and is in the process of being rebuilt
