Set over the altar in the east wall, this window has three tall lights with quatrefoil heads and perpendicular tracery above filling the arch. It is highly decorated with vibrant shades of red with background details in shades of white and grey. The centre light depicts Christ blessing a mother and child, whilst the right light shows a kneeling figure with a walking stick, possibly a leper seeking a cure, and the left light has a half kneeling figure with raised arms. Many of the other figures have halos. In the tracery the lower level has a row of five small lights: the first from left is triangular with the text “ALLEUIA”, the second is decorated with a red shield and yellow figures, possibly ornate FIII or FM. The third light contains a colourless halo figure holding a scroll with the text “HEAVY LADEN &”. Figure four is of the same design with the text “AND I WILL GIVE YOU REST”. The two lights above complete the theme with the same design as below the left light, starting the verse with “COME UNTO ME ALL YE” and the right light “THAT LABOUR & ARE”.
The window was given to the church as a memorial to a former parish vicar.
Alone the bottom edge of the light is the dedication:
There is no obvious maker’s mark, but the Rev. George Brown died in 1886 so the window was probably installed soon after that date.
2.A flat-headed three light window glazed with small leaded squares of green tinted Cathedral glass. Evidence on the exterior face of the wall, the stonework below the window is the same as that of the aisles and the style is also the same, suggesting that this window was added during the 1883-4 rebuilding.
A narrow lancet-headed light set in opening of some antiquity, possibly contemporary to the building’s use as the hospital chapel. It has the haloed figure of Christ dressed in a red robe, supporting a shepherd’s crook and cradling a small lamb. At the bottom of the light is the text: 'I AM THE GOOD SHEPHERD'.
The window was donated by Albert Ball and his father, George (who died in 1887).
No maker’s mark is present.
A memorial window commemorating Sir Albert Ball (1863-1946) made by Burlison & Grylls. The window and plaque were unveiled by Lady Ball and dedicated by the Bishop of Southwell on 25 June 1950.
This window has three tall lights with tracery above filling the pointed arch.
Like the other two stained glass windows in the church, this window is very colourful; it predominantly features, light blue, green and red pigments and depicts the Nativity. The centre light has the image of the haloed baby Jesus attended by two angels, with a donkey and a cow observing the scene. Whilst the left light shows Mary and Joseph also looking on, Joseph has a rather large lidded tankard whist Mary is at prayer. Completing the scene on the right light are the three shepherds, one carrying a lamb, while a Dalmatian dog sits at their feet. The dog was requested by the family of Sir Albert Ball who had such a dog. Completing each of the above scenes is an angel, each with a scroll of text:
Two praying, kneeling angels fill the apex of the arch.
The dedication across the bottom of the window reads:
No maker’s mark.
A plaque on the west wall states:
According to the Nottingham Evening Post reporting on the reopening of the church in 1884 the west window originally contained stained glass by Heaton, Butler, and Baines with the subject of healing the sick; it was given by 'the Misses Charlotte and Ann Wright, as a token of esteem for the vicar of Lenton'.
The six windows illuminating each side of the clerestory have quatrefoil heads and are glazed with small clear glass set in squares within lead frames. They have transom sections at the bottom operated by a mechanical opening system.
