Inside, are beautiful stained-glass windows that portray the lives of four saints associated with Martindale - St Peter, St Ninian, St Patrick and St Martin. The most noteworthy window is situated to the right of the nave and is dedicated to Saint Nicholas, patron saint of sailors, and is in memory of Lieutenant Commander W.H. Parkin and the officers and men of HMS Glorious. The window shows an airman’s view of the aircraft carrier at full steam.
