Stained Glass Walks and Talks

Through this summer programme of guided visits, members are given the opportunity to explore some of the hidden treasures of stained glass around the country. Local guides, often practising stained glass artists themselves, lead small groups along a fascinating trail of working studios, town and country churches and often less accessible stained glass sites.

Summer programme 2018

SUMMER WALK & TALK: Slough and Eton
Saturday 11 August
Led by Caroline Swash and Andrew Taylor

The provisional programme includes St Mary Slough with its splendid west window by Alfred Wolmark described by John Piper in his ground-breaking book Stained Glass: Art or Anti-art (1968) as ‘a landmark, because it is an artist’s window clearly related to a contemporary movement’. Besides this gem, St Mary’s has several fine windows by Kempe and a very good window by Eddie Nuttgens.

In nearby St Lawrence Church we shall see Andrew Taylor’s ‘William Herschel’ window. After a short walk or drive we hope to visit Eton College Chapel to see windows by John Piper and Evie Hone. Should a wedding make this impossible, we may be able to visit St George’s Chapel Windsor.

These Saturdays are partially fundraisers for the BSMGP and there is a nominal cost of £6.00 for Members and £8.00 for Non-members.
NB There may be a small extra charge per person to enter Eton College Chapel, and churches always appreciate donations in their collection boxes.
