East window of north chapel

Designed by Edward Burne-Jones and manufactured by Morris & Co.

1878 (see listing text)

St Edward the Confessor, Leek


With the Holy Ghost, Christian motifs, tracery angels and representations of the four apostles above, and two rows of Biblical figures in the main part of the lights, this is large for a chapel window. Though not identified by Pevsner, it contains recognisable designs from Burne-Jones, some, like that of Ezekiel on the lower right, with his hand raised, quite familiar from a number of other windows. This is partly because the designs continued to be used after Burne-Jones's death. Commentary continues below.
