Long Description:
Stained glass windows in All Saints' church, Stretton-on-Dunsmore.

"Most of the windows simply contain plain leaded glass segments and are not particularly noteworthy. However two of the windows are very interesting. The window in the south wall of the apse contains some medieval painted glass which came from the old building but which had started life in a church in Hackney in London. The glass depicts Christ on the road to Emmaus.

The East window is particularly noteworthy because it is a splendidly colourful. It was installed in 1936 and was a gift to the church by Capt. and Mrs Charles Stiff who lived at Wolston Grange. The artist was Mr Donald Taunton of Edgbaston, Birmingham and the work was carried out by Hardman’s Studios in Birmingham.

The design shows a centre panel of Christ ascending, surrounded by other panels showing a number of Saints, principally St Augustine of Canterbury and St Osbourg of Coventry. Running across the window is the scroll ‘we praise thee O Lord….we acknowledge thee to be the Lord.’"
