The stained glass of All Saints Old Buckenham

Looking at windows


Have you ever thought about the history of the oldest building in Old Buckenham? You may walk or drive past it every day, you may regularly attend worship there – but maybe you have only been inside occasionally, for a wedding or funeral perhaps. It’s just possible you’ve never visited at all! To launch a major heritage project in relation to the restoration of the medieval windows, there will be an illustrated talk  entitled 'All Saints Windows - Throwing light on 1000 years of a village Church’ in All Saints Church on Saturday 16 March at 7.30pm.
The talk will be about the 1000 year history of this building, focusing particularly on the stained and painted glass. After the talk there will be refreshments in the Church Rooms with an opportunity to learn more and to find out how to get involved in supporting the continuous work of preserving this wonderful building for the future. Donations for the restoration project will be most welcome. For more information please contact Alison on 01953 861261.
