Chapel Window – 29 August 2022

Chapel Window 29 August


We have finally managed to get the broken pane in one of the Chancel windows repaired.  The damage occurred months ago in a storm which somehow blew out a single pane in the middle of one of the original leaded windows, presumably dating back to the building of the Chapel in the 1780s.

They are delicately painted in a style that would have been extremely difficult to match in any satisfactory way – until we thought of not trying to reproduce a long-lost method of production but instead of installing a small tribute to Malcolm Sadler, who had worked tirelessly to maintain the Chapel over the space of some sixty years and who died in 2018.  It took the glaziers some time to produce the right effect, but we are pleased with the result.
