The remarkable story of St Nicolas Church’s stained glass windows in Newbury

St Nicolas Church is in the centre of Newbury, right next to the Town Hall.

Any visitor to this historic building will notice its rich array of stained glass windows.

There is a remarkable story behind the windows – what they depict and how a tremendous local community effort, over decades,  secured their installation.

Rick Coward, St Nicolas churchwarden and art historian, came into Kennet Radio’s Newbury studio to talk about how the church was transformed into how we know it today. Please click on the arrow below to hear the interview in full:
