St John the Baptist, Llanrothal, Herefordshire

There is not a huge amount to see inside at first glance but actually the church contains a C17 cross and candlesticks (Italian, silvered wood) on the altar, a pulpit with Jacobean panels and some minor remains of tomb slabs. However there is a C15 candleabrum complete with a figure of the Virgin. Apart from the pulpit all of this was donated by the first chairman of the CCT or Redundant Churches Fund as it was then. Finally for me an architectural puzzle - why the huge Perp window on the south side of the chancel, its head mutilated and quite out of character here. It is quality work - so did it come from elsewhere?
