Victorian Glass

Victorian Windows

During the re-ordering of the Church in 1887 the company Burlison and Grylls were commissioned to create new glass in the South Aisle, West Wall and North Aisle, and in the Clerestories of the Nave and Chancel. This gallery contains images of their stunning creations. A summary of the religious iconography of the glass relating to the dedication of the church to St Michael and All Angels can be found within A Guide to Thornhill Parish Church, which you can download here.(PDF 786k). Burlison and Grylls were also responsible for renovating the medieval glass in the church and for documenting the iconography of the East window in the Savile Chapel panel-by-panel. Without their work the Medieval glass would not have been able to be restored to its original glory as it is today. You can view images of their drawings here which are now kept in the West Yorkshire Archives.
