The East Window at St. Paul's

The East Window at St. Paul's The East Window at St. Paul's was erected in memory of those who died in World War I.

It incorporates images of people from the First World War - servicemen and land army, men and women - as well as elements of local Oldham landscape into the scene from chapter 25 of John's Gospel.

Sadly we do not know who designed the window.

As usual, you can click on all the pictures to make them bigger.

Condition

We believe that the window itself is in very good condition.

However, the stonework around the window panels has been over painted in grey, and we are exploring grant applications

These measures will restore the window to its former glory.

The Imperial War Museum's Register of War Memorials

You can click this link to find the entry of the war memorial in the Imperial War Museum's Register of War Memorials.

However, we believe that the entry contains errors. For example, the location of the church is wrongly marked. And only the brass plaques are referenced, rather than the glorious window between them.
