Windows

There are seven windows in the church. Two of these are clear leaded windows and five are made of beautiful painted glass. They are believed to be by Marechal and Champigneulle of Metz being brought to Goostrey around 1870.The north and south windows are of a uniform dimension 1.5 metres wide by 2.9 metres in height. The scenes are enhanced by rich crimson highlights and the East Window is especially effective when it is floodlit from behind.The two south windows are presently being fully restored requiring their complete removal to a studio in Bolton where missing and damaged glass is being replaced, the leadwork renewed and new external protection fitted.This work has been made possible by two generous donations from parishioners.
