  5. Reset in plain glass. Gibbs had used the designs for two of the lights two years earlier for a window in the north side of the chancel of St Nicholas’ Church, Wickham, in Hampshire. There is a disembodied hand below Christ’s right arm, probably caused by the removal of some of the original coloured glass of the window. In the complete version at Wickham, the hand belongs to a figure standing behind Christ.
