The Stained Glass Centre at St Martin cum Gregory, Micklegate, York will be holding a Spring Lecture on Thursday 14 May at 7.30pm.
The lecture, given by Susan Harrison of English Heritage, is entitled ‘Stained Glass by Henry Gyles from Belsay Castle’. Susan Harrison is the Collections Curator for English Heritage (North of England), based at the Helmsley Archaeology Store. A previously unknown window by the eminent glass-painter Henry Gyles of York (1645–1709) was recently discovered at Belsay Castle (see Vidimus 80). This lecture will reveal more about its discovery, research, significance, conservation and display, appropriately in the church where Gyles’s father Edmund, a glazier, was church warden, and where Henry Gyles was baptized and buried.
Doors will open at 7pm, and refreshments will be available. Tickets, available on the door, are £6; concessions £5; free for Friends of the SGC.
