Ben Finn's Stained Glass Workshop

 

In 1994 the Society was approached by Benjamin Finn, a local stained glass artist, who expressed a wish to use the church as a studio. This seemed an ideal way to combat vandalism and repairs were carried out to make the building weatherproof and suitable for its new use. Click here for more information on Benjamin Finn, at the the Stained Glass Museum in Ely.

 

Of particular interest is the way in which the windows have been reglazed in oak tracery, designed by Julian Limentani, instead of trying to replace the original stone mullions. The work carried out - largely at Mr Finn's own expense - is all reversible and preserves the character and archaeological interest of the building whilst allowing it to be given a new lease of life.
