"He called the name of the place, "House of God"

Goddard & Gibbs


St. Martin's Church, West Acton

This, the southernmost of the west lancet windows, shows a pilgrim with seemly solemnity, blessing the as yet unhewn stone with holy water. It commemorates the 60th anniversary of the church's dedication. The inscription adds that it also commemorates "all who were members of the congregation during the years 1906-1966."
