The Nativity, in the west wall of St Andrew's church, East Heslerton, N. Yorkshire. The church, designed by G. E. Street, was built in 1873-77, and the stained glass throughout is by Clayton and Bell.

A closer view of the Magi, on the left, and centre; and a shepherd with his sheep on the right. The two figures furthest left and right support the two groups immediately beside the nativity scene — the extra King on the far left has cast down his crown, and the shepherd on the far right is shown with part of the flock.
