Above. Royal arms on the church wall.

Judging by the date at the bottom of the arms, 1815, these would be the arms of King George III.

Above. Window showing St Elizabeth and St Hilda.

The dedication reads "In loving memory of Elizabeth Agnes Wilding, niece of the Reverend James Harrison. This window is dedicated by her children, A.D. 1933."

Above. Window showing the virgin Mary (right) hilding the infant Jesus.

This photo is, unfortunately, a little over exposed and was taken on my older camera. It's therefore very difficult to make out the dedication. What I can see, is that it was in memory of James Harrison (priest), died January 1922(?) aged 69 years old. The dedication in the right hand window doesn't have enough detail to enable me to zoom in and read it.

Above. This window seems to depict a priest.

As this slightly over exposed photo seems to show a window depicting a priest, and it is dedicated to James Harrison again, am I right in thinking that this is an image of him (James Harrison)?

Above. Another window memorialising a member of the Harrison family.

This window bears a dedication to Margaret Harrison, died 1876 and also Mary Harrison, died 1877.

Above. Window showing St George (left) and unidentified saint(right)

Unfortunately due to the lower resolution of my old camera, I'm unable to make out the dedication at the foot of the window.

Above. The magnificent three light East Window.

The centre pane shows Jesus carrying a lamb (the lamb of god?) with a host of angels in the left and right hand panes. The dedication is to Sir Louisa, daughter(?) of Sir Woodbine Parish, and also to Blanche M. Kay Shuttleworth(?)

Blanche Marion Kay-Shuttleworth was a daughter of Sir Woodbine Parish and was the wife of Sir Ughtred Kay-Shuttleworth, later 1st Baron Shuttleworth. Their main family home was Gawthorpe Hall, Padiham, now National Trust, but they also lived at Barbon Manor, built by Ughtred's father, Sir James Kay-Shuttleworth. The couple had four daughters and two sons, both killed in the First World War and commemorated on Barbon War Memorial - Lawrence and Edward Kay-Shuttleworth.
