Appeal sheds light on historic windows

AN appeal to refurbish historic stained-glass windows has been started by members of St Michael’s Church, Lamplugh.

On a Mission: Fundraisers Sally Matterson, Martha Jackson, Trevor Monkman and Stan Buck

By Julie Morgan

In 1882, the inhabitants and friends of the parish raised £102 10s in subscriptions to pay for the windows, three of which were designed by famous Victorian stained glass designer, Charles Eamer Kempe.

The Rev Chris Casey will be giving a talk, entitled May Day Through The Stained-glass Windows, on Thursday, May 1, at the church starting at 7pm. The fundraising event will also include a buffet supper and raffle with tickets costing £5.

Parishioners are also aiming to repair the church bells, having previously raised £22,000 to fund a new toilet at the church.

St Michael’s is also the only church in Cumbria completely designed by Victorian architect, William Butterfield.
