Our Stained Glass Windows
Dennis Marchant has been researching for the local history group, the Warner family, who during their time living at Quorn Hall, were substantial benefactors to St. Bartholomews Church.
The magnificent east stained-glass window was installed by them in 1865, in memory of Charlotte who had died aged eleven in 1862. The window portrays Christ Crucifixion and Resurrection as well as other biblical scenes. Along the bottom it says: "In the dear memory of Charlotte Elizabeth Grey daughter of Edward and Marianne Warner of Quorndon Hall born September 1851 died 5th March 1862". In 1919 the window was removed for repairs, being replaced by a temporary window of plain glass.
During this time Mr Warner received a poem from an anonymous rhymester. Reading the poem, and following this cold winter in church, Dennis couldn’t help but sympathise with our forefathers, as the Icey breezes blow in from Barrow Cliff !
