Long Description:
The Scout window shows Scout badges, a knight in armour typifying courage, Christ with his arm on the shoulder of a pathfinder, a Scout setting out from home, and a camp-fire group in a field of bluebells.

"This 6 light window was erected in 1929 to the Scout Movement. The window has the signature Earnest C Carter of Hincks & Burnell, in the bottom center and a mark of a crown in bottom right hand corner. A brass plaque below the window reads:
'In thankfulness to God for the Scout Movement and its extension throughout the
world this window was presented by John Alexander Simpson District Commissioner
for Nottingham in the twenty-first year after the first scout camp held on Brownsea Island'"
