The South Aisle

In the South aisle there is a black and white marble memorial to Hester Richardson (Norman), this is typical of its kind but interesting in its use of both the ancient ‘f’ for s and the modem s in such words as lofs and goodnefs.

There are fine stone corbels, supporting the roof timbers on either side.
The Perpendicular windows of this aisle contain modern glass placed as a War Memorial in 1949. From the East end, the three matching designs relate to the three armed services and depict St Clement, St Michael and St George. The lines written on the bottom panels of the RAF window were composed by Eleanor Lutley, wife of a former vicar of St Anne’s, Hewish. These windows are in marked contrast to the more modern West window in the aisle, dated 1971, which shows Jesus surrounded by young children. Situated above the Southwest corner this window recalls the words of Jesus “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven “.
