Arthur Mee states :-

"No other church in England is dedicated to the Saxon saint Adelwold (or Ethelwald), who became Bishop of Lindisfarne.

He was a monk at Ripon before he went to live a solitary life where St Cuthbert had lived, in a cell on the island of Farne.

There he spent 12 years, and once, the venerable Bede relates, calmed a storm which was threatening some of his visitors.

He was laid to rest beside St Cuthbert at Lindisfarne"

C13 triple lancet window with early C20 stained glass. From a Lincolnshire Chronicle article dated May 6th, 1911:-

"Preaching at Coleby on Tuesday, May 2nd, on the occasion of the dedication of the new east window, the Bishop of Grantham congratulated the Vicar and parishioners on the very real improvement they had been able to make in the appearance of their ancient and beautiful parish church.

The window to which his lordship referred is in the form of three long and narrow Early English lancets, which are somewhat difficult to treat satisfactorily.

Messrs. Burlison and Grylls, of London, to whom the design and execution of the work was entrusted, have, however, produced a result which has given entire satisfaction to all concerned.

The church is dedicated to All Saints, and this has been kept in mind in the selection of the subjects.

Two tiers of figures fill-up the greater part of the three lights. The centre of the upper tier is filled with a Crucifixion with the legend "King of Saints." On either side are "the Mother of Jesus" and "the disciple whom Jesus loved.

In the lower tier there are St. Hugh of Lincoln, St. Barbara, and St. Thomas de Cantilupe.

St. Barbara was chosen because the advowson of the living, down to the year 1327 belonged to the Canons of St. Barbara, while St. Thomas de Cantilupe was rector of Coleby 1265-1275, before he went to Hereford as bishop.

At the foot of each light is a coat of arms on the left those of the reputed founder of the church, Ralph, Camerarius de Tanquarvilla; in the centre those of Oriel College, Oxford, to whom the patronage passed in 1327; and on the right those of the present Vicar and his wife.

Between the upper and lower tiers there are introduced the concluding words of the Epistle for All Saints' Day: " Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honour and power and might be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen"; while at the foot are inscribed the words from the prayer for the Church Militant: " We bless Thy Holy Name for all Thy servants departed this life in Thy faith and fear." 

It has taken nearly two years to raise the money for the window, and the subscribers fall naturally into three groups: (1) parishioners, past and present; (2) members of Oriel College; and (3) friends and relations of four successive vicars, Mr. Penrose, Canon Tweed, Mr. Curtoys and Mr. King; and it is much to be regretted that Canon Tweed did not live to see the work completed. Not only was he the largest individual subscriber, but the energy and enthusiasm which he threw into the task of helping the present Vicar to collect the necessary subscriptions was simply invaluable.

The dedication was timed for four o'clock, and the church was nearly full, in spite of the unfavourable weather. Evensong was sung by the Vicar, who also read the lessons.

The choir, though several members were unavoidably absent, did their part admirably, and the Bishop was kind enough to say that he was specially pleased with the chanting ..."

Local information has :-  

"The two stained glass windows in the Lady Chapel are both con-nected to F Wells, Esq. of Dunstan, he erected the North Window in 1852 and the East Window was erected in his memory in 1862.

Pevsner, in his guide, describes the 1862 window as "pictorial and terrible" and attributes it to Wailes, a famous craftsman of the period. However, Lawrence Bond is of the opinion that the 1852 window looks more like Wailes' work.

The North panel of the East Window was badly damaged during two burglaries which took place in 1993, approximately two-thirds of this part of the window having to be replaced. The restoration being carried out by David J. B. Sear of the Lincolnshire Stained Glass Studio"

It would seem that Canon Hawkins who served this church for 29 years from 1884-1913 was a generous and popular incumbent. A collection was made for him at his silver jubilee in 1909 and he asked that it be used to pay for this window.

The east window relates to the life of the Blessed Virgin Mary to whom the church is dedicated. She is shown holding the Christ child and the outer panels depict the Madonna lily with which she is associated.

The church was largely paid for by Thomas Arthur Young of Kingerby Manor near Market Rasen and it is believed that elements of the window design are based on an ancient family design in his home.

White's Directory of Lincolnshire 1856 states :-

"Nocton Church (St. Peter) is a small structure in the Grecian style.

The vicarage, valued in K.B. at £7. 17s. IOd., and now at £560, is in the gift of the Lord Chancellor and incumbency of the Rev. Edward Wilson, M.A., who has a good modern Vicarage House.

The tithes were commuted for allotments at the enclosure"

Normanby le Wold, St Peter, Reredos & East Window

The ornate reredos of Caen stone and alabaster inlaid with marble and gilded mosaic work may be designed by James Fowler.

The east window had wholly clear glazing until ten panels of 18th century German glass were brought to Normanby from the redundant church of St Andrew at Panton.

Eight of them are arranged here, each one showing a scene from the life of Christ.

This window in the south aisle commemorates ‘George Leonard Francis who died March 3rd 1932 aged 82. He worshipped in this church for 41 years, 33 as churchwarden’.

The design shows St Paul, Christ and St Peter above the arms of the Diocese of Lincoln (left) and the See of Canterbury (right). It is signed by Jones & Willis, manufacturers of church furnishings who began to supply stained glass from about 1880.

Some of their other stained glass designs can be seen at:

This window on the south side of the chancel dates from 1897 and is by Kempe. It shows the Annunciation with the figures of the Archangel Gabriel on the left and the Virgin Mary on the right.

This window is said to have come from nearby Claxby St Mary.

This is one of ten panels of German glass brought to Normanby from the redundant church of St Andrew at Panton.

It shows a very traditional depiction of the Annunciation with St Gabriel on the left and the Virgin Mary kneeling at a desk holding her prayer book with a madonna lily in the centre.

It has been placed with the words AVE GRATIA PLENA, which means ‘full of grace’, backwards, but perhaps it can be read from outside when the church is lit for evensong.

The east window of the north aisle is in memory of Marie, wife of W F Chambers whose tomb is close by. She died in 1839. The design is of the tree of Jesse and is an artistic representation of the genealogical descent of Christ from the house of David. The figure of Jesse lies asleep along the bottom edge of the window and from his side a branch grows to link in the figures of David, Solomon, Asa, Josaphat, Ezekiah and Josias up to the Virgin Mary and the Christ child in the tracery at the top.

The tree of Jesse is the original depiction of a family tree and it is based on a passage in the Book of Isaiah. More information on other examples can be found at:-

The glass in the tripartite window is said to have been designed by Michael O’Connor in 1861.

It commemorates Anne the first wife of Revd Henry Brackenbury, and Henry himself and must have been commissioned a year before his death.

O’Connor was one of the leading craftsmen in glass in the middle of the nineteenth century. See:

Supported by the Parish Council, it was paid for by local subscription and a grant from "Awards for All" Lottery funds ...

Deliberately 'modern' to reflect the millennium, the window was designed and made by Lincoln artist Glen Carter.

The dove at the top represents the Holy Spirit of God 'brooding over creation': The blue may represent heaven, the rays of coloured light may stand for the love of God reaching down and being partly reflected back by the blue of the pond which represents the local village. The red 'figure'? Well, that's up to you ..."

The east window is of three lights in Y-tracery. The central light has a small figure of Christ as the Good Shepherd holding a crook within his right arm and a lamb on his left.  His right hand is raised in benediction.

Along the bottom edge the text is "In Loving Memory of Eleanor Cave Alington who died 3 April 1892 aged 17 years.  Given by her relations & friends."

Eleanor was born at Muckton Rectory on 5th May 1874, the only daughter of Revd Charles Argentine Alington.  She died at Bournemouth and was buried at Swinhope as her father was at that time the parson there.

Vedast (died c. 540) was an early bishop in the Frankish realm.

He was venerated in Belgium as well as England (from the 10th century) where he was known as Saint Foster.

The spread of his cult was aided by the presence of Augustinians from Arras in England in the 12th century.

Three ancient churches in England (in London (St Vedast Foster Lane), Norwich and Tathwell) were dedicated to him.

His feast is on 6 February.

Kelly's Directory 1913 records "the greater part of the ancient stained glass, representing sacred subjects, figures of saints, besides many shields of arms borne by the Cromwells, was removed in 1754 to the church of St. Martin, Stamford Baron; the remainder, collected together, is now in the east window"
