The bright colours of this stained glass window show a tree growing from a man's hip, a scene which is an allegory for the 'Holy Family'– the infant Jesus, his mother the Virgin Mary and her husband St Joseph. This Medieval window underwent restoration in the Victorian period, which is why the colours are still vibrant today.
