The windows that originally occupied this slot were damaged during the war. Some elements of the original windows have been salvaged and incorporated into the design of the new windows.
You would wonder that it was possible, I mean it's hardly small, but I almost missed this window on the way out. It was made by W T Carter Shapland in 1961.
St Werburgh is the patron saint of this cathedral, which is why she is holding a church (in the same way St Ninian can be seen holding a church in a sculpture just outside Whithorn). She was originally buried in Hanbury in Staffordshire in 699 but was dug up and brought here years later. Her original shrine was destroyed and her body scattered in the reign of Henry VIII, but another shrine has since been built - it should appear in a later blog. Keep an eye on St Oswald too, to whom the church was also dedicated in 975 - he's due to make another blog appearance soon (or at least part of him)
