The Miraculous Draught of Fish

William Wailes (1808-1881)


Stained glass

South aisle, first window, St Peter's Church


The four matching south aisle windows, typical of the early Wailes in their bold designs and brilliant colours, were the first to be installed, before the rest of the church was built, and deal with significant events involving St Peter. This illustrates Luke 5, 1-11, where Jesus says to the wondering disciple, "Fear not, thou shalt catch men" (v.10). [Click on the image to enlarge it, and mouse over the text below for links.]
