Two years after a Memorial was launched for the late Dean Jeremy Winston inital work has begun on the East window of the Lewis Chapel.
Next week scaffolding will go up on the exterior of the window frame that is to house the new Jesse Memorial Window. The scaffolding will allow the Priory Architect to inspect the state of the stonework and the Window designer, Helen Whitaker to make more detailed measurements.
The window chosen from a design long list of five will re-create the rest of the Tree of Jesse and will complement the Priory Church’s unique wooden Jesse Tree.
The Vicar Fr Mark Soady said, “It is exciting to see something happening on site after two years of planning, but that excitement is tempered by knowing that we still have to get final approval for the design from the church authorities”.
To date the memorial fund has raised around £35,000 locally and has raised a great deal more from grants.
