St Wilfrid’s Church, Ribchester is situated in the picturesque Ribble Valley, in the heart of rural Lancashire, and dates back to the 13th century. It has since undergone several alterations in the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries as well as substantial restoration works in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. The village of Ribchester grew out of the ruins of the Roman fort of Bremetenaccum and the Parish Church of St Wilfrid’s stands where the key buildings of the fort would have been. This window was installed in 1996.
