St George's stained glass: Luke
Most of the stained glass windows of St George's Church were destroyed by or removed after a WWII bomb that exploded nearby. Four windows on the South side of the church have been restored. These windows are the 1950s replacements for the windows destroyed in the blitz. They were removed in the 1980s when the church building had to be closed because of dry rot in the roof and it was thought at the time that the church would have to be demolished. Fortunately it was saved and reopened in 1990. The cost of the rebuilding did not allow for luxuries like stained glass and these were reinstalled much more recently.
