The altar is dominated by the east chancel window which dates from the 1840’s, although this is not the original window that occupied this space.
And what of the churchyard? It is difficult to really know how big it was. Certainly there is a very obvious area with headstones, but there is also an area that is more park like. I could not work out how to access the latter though, but the former wasn’t too difficult. I was able to access the park like area one afternoon after work, (easy enough if you know where to look), and it contains the modern Garden of Remembrance.
What is interesting is how this church has literally had a city centre built around it, and integrated itself into its surroundings. I suspect that many politicians would have loved to raze it to erect some fancy office block or high street storefront, but it has outlasted them all.
