Long Description:
Stained glass windows in St Leonard's church, Birdingbury.

"The polygonal apse, largely obscured until one passes through the screen, is the visual climax of the building and is surprisingly rich for such a small church, with it's cheerfully painted ceiling, adorned with figures of Christ and adoring angels, and full complement of stained glass.

The stained glass is concentrated in the apse and the two windows on each side closest to it. The apse is five sided and has three narrative windows with scenes from Christ's Passion at the centre, flanked by attractive ornamental glazing in the two less visible outer windows. The glass is probably either early work by the London firm of Heaton, Butler & Bayne, Clayton & Bell, and the adjoining south window showing Christ & followers against a red sky appears to have come from the same studio.

The north window is clearly different, being by John Hardman Studios of Birmingham c1880, and depicts four scenes from the life of St Leonard."
