The Annunciation, over a small roundel of the Nativity

St Albans Abbey

West wall of north transept

This is in one of the several round-headed brick windows in this part of the church (see Perkins 31). The text below the Annunciation scene reads, "Hail, thou that art highly favoured," and below that, at the bottom of the window, is an inscription to a rector and churchwardens.
