An appeal has been launched to restore a “remarkable” stained glass window that depicts scenes from the First World War and has been described as one of Keighley’s treasures.

The window was presented to All Saints Church, Highfield, in 1917 by members of the church’s Bible class.

It features a version of the painting The Great Sacrifice, by James Clark, and is unusual because it was installed before the end of the conflict.

The Reverend Dr Jonathan Pritchard, from All Saints Church, wants to raise £1,500 to clean and protect the window, which has been damaged by a stone and has become dull over time.

“The window is one of the treasures of Keighley,” he said. “It is quite remarkable and we recognise we need to have it properly protected and cleaned.

“It is one of only two in the country where the artist who did the original painting was involved in putting the stained glass together.

“The original painting is very well- known. There were many postcards made of it and there will be a number of memorials that have it on.”

The window will be rededicated once the work is completed.

Donations made out to the Memorial Window Appeal can be sent to The Vicarage, 21 View Road, Keighley BD20 6JN.
