Long Description:
From the church website:-
On the left of the door some modern memorial windows commemorate a former vicar of the parish, Revd V.H. Patrick and his wife Ida. The scenes represented are Mary & Joseph finding Jesus among the doctors of the law in the Temple and St Andrew with the boy who provided the five loaves and two small fish for the feeding of the 5000 as described in St John’s Gospel. Both windows were designed and made by Joseph Nuttgens of High Wycombe in 1959.

Continuing down the left-hand aisle we come to the Nativity window with the caption ‘Unto you is born in the City of David a Saviour’.

Here are some more fine Nuttgens windows. The first of these on the left shows St Eadburgha, the patron saint of the original parish church of Broadway. She was the grand-daughter of King Alfred and became an Abbess; this is shown by her royal robes and the staff in her hand. She is holding a model of the church of St Eadburgha’s. The second window shows St Michael to whom the present parish church is dedicated. He holds the scales of justice and the flaming sword which kept Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden.



On the other side of the chancel, the first window to the right of the Altar depicts St Christopher, the patron saint of travellers, bearing the child Jesus across the tempestuous crossing of a river. The last of the four Nuttgens windows shows Elizabeth of Hungary, a 12th Century queen noted for her kindness to the poor. Legend tells how, when she was taking food to the poor in a basket, her husband angrily demanded to see what was in it. When she uncovered it, the loaves had become roses! All these windows commemorate the Payton family (1847-1946). They blend well with the East Window, a Boer War Memorial.

The Memorial Windows in the east are also due to the influence of The Revd. H.V. Patrick as he had served as a missionary in Japan, before becoming Vicar of Broadway. A panel shows Mount Fujiyama. Mrs Barrie Brown, one of Revd. Patrick’s daughters had the window installed in memory of her husband in 1967.
