The Flight into Egypt. North aisle window at Holy Trinity, Northwood, Greater London. The north aisle was added in 1894, but at least some of its windows are thought to have come from the original nave wall, and maybe to date back to 1854 when the church was first completed (see Cherry and Pevsner 342, and listing text). This is one of them. The medallion here, as seen in the close-up, depicts Joseph leading the donkey with Mary sitting sidesaddle and holding her baby tenderly, and the colours are still brilliant.
