St John the Evangelist's Church, Shobdon (North Transept)

Recent Photograph of St John the Evangelist's Church (North Transept) (Shobdon)

This “room” which occupies the North Transept was for servants of the Bateman family. The South Transept on the opposite side of the nave was a private room fitted out for the Bateman family. Both however had separate doorways from Shobdon Court, separated from the grounds of the church by a wrought iron fence.

The design of the stained glass windows was by William Price the Younger, dominant colours being red and blue, with contrasting yellow and brown in the circular insets in the windows of both transepts, containing the Bateman family crest.

The accompanying photograph of a north view of St John the Evangelist's Church shows the exterior of the transept.
