Some notes and dates of interest in the long history of the Church and Parish of Bigbury

Some notes and dates of interest in the long history of the Church and Parish of Bigbury, c1970

bigbury-church-datesNB – the East window in the Chancel does not date to 1804 as mentioned in the chronology above. Instead the window is a memorial to the Rev. J. P. Harris who died at sea in 1864.

To give the modern decoration of the Church some context here are two postcards which depict the previous chancel arrangements; the earliest postcard dates to circa 1920 and shows the mosaic “alpha and omega” reredos; the second dates to 1957. This shows the earlier reredos covered, or cleared away, and prior to the current arrangement.
