Memorials - Walton-le-Dale - Captain George Woods Memorial Window
This is a most beautiful window design and installed to the memory of Captain George Woods. At the very top we see angels dressed in red with cherubs either side in blue. The main panes show St. George smiting the dragon on the right and Jesus with the Lamb of God.
At the foot of the window, the exhortation and the personal details of Captain Wood are given, along with a depiction of his regimental badge.
