CHCT was delighted to hear from Mary Wooding (former church warden and key player in the project) that the restoration of the beautiful Arts and Crafts WW1 Memorial East window at St Pol de Leon church in West Cornwall was completed in time for a re-dedication ceremony in May 2018. Originally commissioned by the Bolitho family in memory of their only surviving son who had been killed at Ypres in May 1915, it was the creation of prominent Arts and Crafts designer Robert Anning Bell. Today it is highly regarded as a unique window of the highest artistic and historic significance, ranking as one of the most important stained glass windows in Cornwall of any age. A team of craftsmen from Humphries Glass of Wells worked closely with Cornwall-based stone carver and sculptor Reuben Marsh. Reuben was shortlisted for a prestigious Angel Award (co-funded by Historic England and the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation) in the category which recognizes ‘a craftsperson who has demonstrated skills which have been key in repairing or rescuing a historic site’. CHCT allocated the project a grant in 2014.
