The North Nave

Going along the North Aisle toward the Transept, you will notice that most of the windows on this side of the Cathedral have only a single light; compare the double lancets of the south side. The first window (1965), which is a double lancet, depicts St. Thomas and St. Mark in its upper portion, with the Confession of St. Thomas and the Temptation of Christ in the Wilderness below. Presented by one of his former choirboys, this window is in memory of Canon H.B. Cartwright and his leadership in restoring the nave during the years 1899-1905.

The second window (1907) represents St. Luke and the Supper At Emmaus. This window was dedicated by "loyal sons of the mother country, giving thanks to God for mercies vouchsafed to the English nation" upon the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar (1805). 

The third window (1907) is dedicated to St. John the Evangelist, in memory of Agnes Elizabeth Whiteway Pilot and her fellow workers in the Church's service. It depicts St. John, together with the Angels and the Holy Women at the Sepulchre.

The fourth and last of the single lancet windows (1907), is dedicated to St. Matthew. It depicts that Evangelist, together with the Risen Christ greeting Mary Magdalene.

Re-entering the North Transept, you pass the Northwest Pier (pillar), which bears two plaques. The bronze one on the north side is dedicated to the Reverend George Macness Johnson who served as rector of the Cathedral 1847-1877. The stone plaque on the east side records the names of the men from this parish who gave their lives during the Second World War.
