Historic stained glass

PDFPrintE-mail

CreationThere is a mixture of Victorian and modern stained glass windows in the Church.

This results from the severe damage to the Church which occurred in July 1944, when two flying bombs fell within 200 metres of the building. The explosions destroyed 111 of the 132 stained glass window panels, and severely damaged 14 others; only seven remained intact.

Thomas Freeth, a local art teacher, designed all the modern windows in St George's. He died in 1994, leaving designs for some of the windows which are still "unstained".
