10. Noah and the Dove

In the grounds of St Johns historic almshouses stands a small sculpture entitled ‘Noah and the Dove’ sculpted by Simon Manby 2006. The statue is in the gardens of the St John’s chapel which is part of the original historical Monks’ Walk linking St John’s to the Franciscan Friary. The chapel has been a place of worship since 1135.  Within the Chapel itself is the large and strikingly colourful stained glass window representing ‘Christ in Majesty’ by artist John Piper, this was placed in the east window in 1984.
