It was great to welcome such an enthusiastic group from Paul Church, near Mousehole, to Heart of Conflict – our World War One exhibition at the Royal Cornwall Museum – yesterday (28 June 2017). At the very start of Heart of Conflict in 2014, we visited Paul Church and heard about their major project to restore a fine World War One stained glass window there in memory of local man Torquil Bolitho. Click here for more about that.
Now – very good news – the group has received a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund for the window restoration. As part of the project, they are visiting various examples of ‘good practice’ – and Heart of Conflict was the first visit!
It was very enjoyable talking about the development of our exhibition – and hearing their plans.
Elements of Heart of Conflict are relevant to Paul, so may well be on display there in the near future.
