The Harvest Window in The Lady Chapel

The west window of the chapel is one of the more satisfying compositions in the church. By William Morris it depicts both Boaz and Ruth in the harvested field , where Ruth is gleaning for ears of corn in a most inappropriately elaborate fifteenth-century robe.

The window commemorates the good harvest 1863 - the dedication is at the very bottom right of Ruth's window.

Above, in the tracery, is the prophet Isaiah, by Philip Webb, bearing a scroll reading: Verda de radice Jesse - "a rod from the stem of Jesse" Isaiah 11:1.
