Elijah the Tishbite
This window over St Paul’s Altar and the Font has no plaque.
It is possibly by Clayton and Bell. As with all of the pre-war windows in the nave, only the top section remains.
The four angels hold ribbons quoting from the First book of Kings Chapter 21 verse 17:
“The word of the Lord came to
Elijah the Tishbite”
