The windows of these church are located above the high altar in the church. The window was installed in the early 1920's by the then vicar, the Revd Edward Olive. Showing Christ coming to a soldier in the trenches, it follows a design by the vicar's nephew by marriage, Brigadier Roland Bradford, the youngest brigadier in the British army in World War I. Bradford had intended to distribute the picture to his men at Christmas 1917, a plan cut short by his death at the the hands of a sniper on the front.
Viewing inside the church is only possible on Saturday afternoons in Summer, where the church has volunteers sitting in there and are happy to make you a cup of tea while you look around. Other times it can viewed during normals services.
