Cornish stained glass - an untold story

An interesting lecture at Paul Church, near Mousehole, Cornwall, on Tuesday 29 May at 730pm.
Stained glass expert Michael Swift will be telling the story of the newly restored window there which tells a remarkable World War One story. Michael's talk - 'The Bolitho windows in Cornwall and Devon, an untold story' will look at another memorial window at Leusdon in Devon - and ....the 'untold story':
 "the recovery of the design cartoon of the Leusdon window (in Paul) in a boiler room of the British Legion in Mousehole, and the possibility of the involvement of Thomas Cooper Gotch, the Newlyn painter."
Great art and a detective story - a winning formula.  Entrance £5 includes a drink and snack supper.
