About this project

Commissioned by the council of Banbury in 2014 the brief required the design of two Rose windows for the Town Hall. The first window looks back and commemorates WW1. Treated like a landscape the design features poppies of remembrance.
The second Rose window looks forward and celebrates the birth of Prince George. The oak leaf forms part of the Middleton family crest and symbolises growth and strength.
The windows were dedicated by The Rt. Rev. Colin Fletcher Bishop of Dorchester - 4th August
