The remaining glass and other heraldry in St Andrews
Besides the many William Wailes windows, we have a few other bits of Victorian glass and some interesting survivors of a bygone era.

William Wailes Glass
We believe that we have the largest collection of William Wailes' glass in the County. It has in the past been described " by common consent to be of the very worst of the Victorian period" How opinions change in 50 years!
