The remaining glass


The glass in the tower and the porch dates from the 1890's when significant work to these parts of the building was carried out, funded by the Smith family.  It is their family monogram set in stone that forms the apex of the porch roof. The two tower windows consist of plain and coloured opaque quarries and the "Fide et Marte" crest in the porch window may just be pretention?








The remaining nine glass armorials are to be found in the North window of the North transept and are the oldest of all the glass to be found in St Andrew's.
