Fresh light on an old window in Paul

Great to see the amazing World War 1 window at Paul Church restored. It had looked impressive enough before - but the new work has revealed so many details. Here are just a few.
It's frustratingly difficult to take photos of the window as so much light streams through it now! Even more reason to go and visit.
The Church is celebrating the restoration with a weekend of activities over the first Bank Holiday in May.
Robert Anning Bell, the Arts and Crafts movement artist, designed this window, honouring local man Lieutenant William Torquil Macleod Bolitho who was killed on 24 May 1915 during the Second Battle of Ypres.   Click here to read more about Paul Church's extremely hard work to get this restoration funded and completed.
