*Colour* Light * Connection*

The new East window is a beautiful addition to Chadkirk Chapel.
Designed to enhance the sense of place and resonate with the landscape of Chadkirk, it allows light in and views out to the wooded hillside beyond the Chapel.

Yesterday the window was unveiled at the Chadkirk Festival 2013.
The photographs below show the team of local craftsmen working to install the window.
