Long Description:
Stained glass windows in St Michael's church, Occold.

"an elaborate and fantastical window of 1995 in the south chancel window. It remembers Nerissa Jones, who had died in 1985. She was an illustrator of children's books. The artist was Louise Spencer. The imagery, although secular, was intended to 'fit in with the special atmosphere of the church, rather quiet and mysterious'. Images from Nerissa Jones sketchbooks were included - fairies, flowers, elves, letters. Some of the glass is recut Victorian glass from damaged panels found in storage."

Another window contains fragments of medieval glass, and a small round-headed window in the chancel N. wall (immediately west of the vestry) of Norman origin, which contains some coloured glass.
