Holy Trinity and St George possesses a fine but small collection of beautiful stained glass windows. The clarity of the images contained within their glass, and the intensity of the colour is amazing. Here are those windows with a brief description about each one.
This window depicts St Joseph, and is the work of Henry Barnett of Newcastle Upon Tyne.
Above. A window showing St George and St Catherine standing side by side, above the Madonna and child. The window is dedicated to the memory of The Rev. William Canon Stevenson, Rector of the parish for thirty two years, who died in August 1827.
The window shows the Rev. Thomas Wilkinson in the centre light, the founder of the church, holding the building in his arms, and offering it to Christ. There is an inscription beneath this light, but I'm unable to read it from this photo. The left light shows St Cuthbert, patron of the diocese, and beneath him, another unreadable inscription. The right light shows St George standing on the dragon....a motif echoed in the statue high up on the external wall of the church. Unfortunately the inscription beneath this light is also unreadable. The three lights are by John Hardman of Birmingham.

This is the second window by Henry Barnett of Newcastle Upon Tyne.
Above. A window dedicated to the memories of John J. Aston Watkins of Hobart, Tasmania, and Simon and Dorothy Myerscough.
This window depicts St John holding a huge quill. Above him, the Crucifixion of St Simon is shown, and beneath him, the execution of St Dorothea. The window is another here by John Hardman of Birmingham.
Above. A window depicting St William. It is dedicated to, bizarrely, the memories of William and Emma Halliday, Isabella Holliday, George Halliday, Jane Halliday, William Holliday and Emma Holliday. It seems that the Holliday and the Hallidays were made for each other!!!
Above. A window depicting the Good Shepherd and St Peter. It is dedicated to the memory of The Rev. James Gibson, Rural Dean, and for 47 years the pastor of the church.
The window was probably erected sometime around 1895, and was gifted to the church by his friends C.I. and W. Ellison
Holy Trinity and St George seems to be open for inspection during the days now, and is well worth a look around.
