A stained glass window pane depicting St Margaret of Antioch (289 - 304), with her slain dragon lying beneath her feet coloured in a brilliant indigo. Indigo was a popular colour of the Arts and Crafts style, which All Saints' was designed in, as it was viewed as a more natural and authentic colour than the mass manufactured blue pigments of the time.
