Welsh stained glass window
Welsh stained glass window
St. Ishmael, the parish church of Ferryside has a fairly unusual stained glass window in that the inscriptions are in Welsh - something that's relatively rare.

The inscription comes in three parts - the angel on the top window carries the inscription "Eiddynt yw teyrnas nefoedd" (Theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven) and the two images beneath are captioned "Y Bugail Da" (The Good Shepherd) and "Duw cariad yw" (God is Love).

Beneath is the inscription (in English): "Lt. General Robert Christopher Mansel, Knight of Hannover, Colonel of the 68th Lt. Infantry who died April the 8th 1864 aged 75 and was buried near the camp at Shorncliffe where he so ably commanded for several years".
