Located on the South side of this south coast landmark, these stained glass windows are a memorial to Bishop Trevor Huddleston (pupil at Lancing College 1927 - 1931). The design tackled the very gritty subject of Apartheid in South Africa. The acid etched stained glass represents a topsy-turvy world in a landscape of tin rooves, beneath which is poverty yet a vibrant heart. Within the landscape there are also two cities, one in light, the other in darkness.

The design was inspired by Huddleston's book 'Naught for Your Comfort'. The windows were dedicated by Archbishop Desmond Tutu in May 2006.
