Long Description:
Stained glass windows in St Margaret's church, Carsington.

"The East Window was given in 1913 by Harry Anthony Chandos Gell and his wife Ada in memory of his parents Henry and Teresa Chandos Pole Gell. “I am the Light of the World” in the middle, St John the Evangelist on the left, and Margaret of Antioch “accompanied by the murderous dragon from which she burst out alive”.

The other windows were presented by Edith Lyttleton Gell in 1929, in memory of her husband Philip. They were crafted by Wippell of Exeter. Philip Gell is presented as Philip the apostle, carrying loaves and fish. John the Divine on the left. The Good Centurion in the middle – the Gells believed they were descended from Romans. In the south window are St Giles, St Helena and St Margaret."
