Overview:

As with its neighbour in Bay 02 the lower half of this window was already missing by the start of the 18th century. Fifteen new panels where created from scratch by Coffetier during his 1872 restoration and two of the original panels were relocated to the lower section (now panels 03 and 10). Parts of this window (particularly the lower right corner) are in the shadow of the stairs leading up the the Chapel of St Piat, making it difficult to photograph them except with reflected light - hence the rather washed-out appearance of some of these images.
