St Nicholas (left) and St Richard of Chichester (right), 1908 (inscribed on the right-hand corner of the right-hand light), by Shrigley & Hunt, in the west end of the south cloister at Chichester Cathedral. St Nicholas is shown bearing three golden balls on a Bible. These represent the life-changing gifts that he is reputed to have given to a poor man, allowing the man to marry his three daughters to good husbands. St Richard of Chichester was a thirteenth-century bishop here, famed for his reforming zeal and courage. His tomb here became a place of pilgrimage. With the deep colours and rich patterning of the two saints' robes, and the pair's dignified bearing and intent expressions, the window is a lovely example of the "good design" for which this firm was known (see "Shrigley & Hunt (1874-1982)." — Jacqueline Banerjee.
