Church of St Peter, Newchurch

In November 2005, John Morgan-Guy and Martin Crampin visited a small group of churches in Monmouthshire. Two of these churches featured windows designed by two twentieth century women artists: the two windows by Florence Camm at Wolvesnewton, and the window by Theodora Salusbury at Newchurch.

The brightly coloured window depicting the Adoration of the Magi at the east end of the Church of St Peter, Newchurch, contains an unusual interpretation of the story in chapter 2 of St Matthew's gospel.
