The one small area of stained glass in the largest of the windows represents the Fruiterers’ Company, which has a historic connection with the church. The image is taken from the story of the Garden of Eden in the Book of Genesis, in which the serpent tempts Eve with fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. She eats it, and offers it to Adam, who eats it as well. The story does not name the fruit, but here it is represented by an apple, as it often is. Whether apples grew in the area in which the story originated is doubtful, but the choice of fruit is entirely appropriate to the English fruit growers who founded the Worshipful Company of Fruiterers.
