E window, exterior.

Image of the feature "Windows: E window" at Glendalough, St Mary.

by Roger Stalley.

A narrow round-headed opening, with jambs of yellow oolite, almost certainly from Dundry. The outer edge is chamfered and there is a groove for glass. Five voussoirs form the window head. Two of the five stones forming the label are decorated with Greek key ornament (the other stones are plain). The label stops are carved as heads, said to be animal heads (according to Leask).

The rear arch is built of grey masonry. The jambs are plain with diagonal tooling. The arch has been rebuilt in rubble.
