The Stained Glass Museum Study Weekend 2019 – West (Riding) of Yorkshire Thursday 25 – Sunday 28 April 2019


The Stained Glass Museum’s 18th Annual Study Weekend will take place 25-28 April 2019 in West Yorkshire, where we will explore the county boroughs of Bradford, Dewsbury, Halifax, Huddersfield, Leeds, and Wakefield, from our base in Bradford.

Anticipated visits will include Thornhill parish church (with a number of 15th century English stained glass windows); Normanton (featuring a wide range of medieval glass collected by Thomas Ward of Ward and Hughes); Wragby (with 400+ panels of 16th-18th century Swiss panels); Leeds Minster (16th century continental glass and several interesting early 19th century windows); Halifax Minster (an array of 19th century windows); and Bradford Cathedral (with early Morris glass designed by Burne-Jones, Rossetti and Ford Maddox Brown, as well as 20th century windows by A.J. Davies and Moira Forsyth).

The Museum’s Study Weekend is open to all, and is a fantastic opportunity to explore stained glass in situ in a different region with like-minded people. No specialist knowledge or background in stained glass is required! Visits are guided and notes are provided on the sites visited.
