Jesse window, Dyserth Parish Church
Jesse window, Dyserth Parish Church
The chief glory of this church is the stained glass window above the altar. This has been described as the finest example of a medieval Jesse Window in North Wales. It is basically in two sections. The upper part is a representation of the twelve Apostles and some feel that it is older than the lower section which is the Jesse window - that is the family tree of Christ. Some authorities say that the older part dates from 1430 and the second part resulted from a bequest in 1530. One tradition has it that the glass was originally in the Abbey at Basingwerk.
