WORK TO START ON CHURCH WINDOW RESTORATION

WORK TO START ON CHURCH WINDOW RESTORATION at ST OSWALD’S CHURCH FULFORD YORK

St Oswald’s Church, Fulford will be starting work on the restoration of the beautiful stained glass rose window in its north transept. The total cost of the project is about £75,000 and is partly funded by a generous grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

St Oswald’s is a listed Victorian church in Fulford with a strong and lively congregation. However, the north transept rose window is in a very poor condition and in danger of falling out of its mounting. The church community has been fund-raising for its restoration for many years.

The works will start in early July and take around 14 weeks. The stonework will be cleaned and renewed where necessary, and the stained glass will be taken away for cleaning and repair. The works will be undertaken in strict accordance with COVID19 regulations. Pocklington stonemasons, MB Masonry and Restoration, will be the lead contractor.

Made possible by money raised by National Lottery players and the generosity of the church congregation, the project will restore the rose window to its original Victorian beauty. The project will also include a community education project where local people and children can learn about the art, design, meaning and heritage of the stained glass in the church.

The Church Warden, Bryan Milner said “It’s great news we are starting work on this project. Its completion is eagerly awaited by our congregation who are looking forward to moving back into the church.”
