The Good Shepherd Window, St Peter's Church, Staines

The Good Shepherd

Designed: Edward Arthur Fellowes Prynne (1854-1921)

Executed: James Jennings

Installed 1911

St Peter's Church, Laleham Road, Staines, Surrey

This window at the west end of the south aisle is a memorial to the founder's father, J. G. Clarke, and also to Lucy Bride Hall, who was the infant daughter of the vicar then, the Rev. H. E. Hall (see Taylor, Souvenir, 13-15). The window shows Jesus as the Good Shepherd, with a shepherd's crook, three sheep beside him and a lamb on his shoulder, and St Peter kneeling beside him on the left, also holding a shepherd's crook and against a similar background — the sheepfold — with his keys hanging prominently from his forearm.
