An important programme is being launched to celebrate and restore the remarkable stained-glass windows created by Birmingham-born Pre-Raphaelite artist Edward Burne-Jones.
These masterpieces portray the Nativity, the Crucifixion and the Ascension. They are iconic of Birmingham’s artistic heritage and now require careful conservation and cleaning.
The Right Reverend David Urquhart, Bishop of Birmingham said: ”The people of Birmingham have here the best stained-glass windows of their kind, not just in Birmingham or Britain, but in the World. Every so often they have to be restored and cherished and this is our opportunity to make them ready for the next 100 years, for future generations to enjoy.”
