The east window by Wailes in 1847 was given in memory of the Misses Kenyons of Swinley. The subjects are The Visit of the Magi, The Ascension of Our Lord, The Baptism of Our Lord, The Carrying of the Cross, The Crucifixion and The Burial of Our Lord.

The High Altar has a black marble top bearing five crosses supported on an oak frame originating from the 17th century.

All Saints Parish Church, Wigan
All Saints Church was established in Saxon times and was probably built on the site of a temple in the Roman settlement of Coccium. The present structure is at least the third building on the site. Major rebuilding took place in 1620 and 1849 and further restorations were made from 1898-1902, from 1947-1957 and from 2002-2006.
