A new east window
An exciting design by Thomas Denny
An appeal has been launched to fund a brand new stained glass window to replace the current worn east window in St John’s. Installed in 1861 to a design by Charles Clutterbuck, the window has deteriorated considerably over the years. An attempt at a repair by overpainting was made during the 1960s, but was unsuccessful and caused further damage.
Approval has now been given by the Church of England authorities for a brand new window designed by Thomas Denny, one of the country’s leading stained glass artists.
The total cost of the project is £228,000 funded by church grants, past and existing fundraising initiatives and pledges. You can read and view more on a separate website www.eastwindowtisbury.com which includes pictures of the new design, and more about Thomas Denny’s vision. There’s also information explaining how to donate to the project.
