This Grade I Listed church located in a small village west of Canterbury sports some notable interesting Georgian and Victorian stained glass as well as some from the 15th century. The PCC applied to us for help towards a range of remedial and conservation work to a number of windows – including repair, resetting and re-instatement and also some making good of stonework. In addition, external protection was to be provided. We thought the intervention necessary and important and offered a grant of £2,000 in 2019.
The picture is of a Thomas Baillie window installed in 1869 in memory of the church warden Charles Warton who was noted as a railway engineer and deputy Lord Lieutenant. It depicts the Deposition on the left and the Ascension on the right. The bowed and slumped glazing had to be taken out, flattened and then re-instated.
