Modern twist on the ancient art of stained glass

A NEW stained-glass window featuring corgis, motorways and the World Wide Web, was dedicated at St John’s in Baildon, Bradford yesterday.

Commissioned to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, the window contains symbols of the UK and images of key achievements during the Queen’s reign.

Sir Edmund Hilary at the top of Mount Everest, Roger Bannister achieving the four minute mile and great construction projects such as the Humber Bridge all feature, as do Concorde, a satellite, the World Wide Web and the DNA double helix - along with motorways and wind farms.

The Reverend Canon John Nowell said: “The aim was to create a vibrant, celebratory window in a bold contemporary style. Hopefully it will bring a smile to the faces of those who look at it.”

The window was designed and made by Pendle Stained Glass at a cost of £14,000.
