A trio of stunning antique stained glass windows has been unveiled to the public.

The panels, which represent female saints, were given a much-needed clean-up after decades of gathering dirt and dust at the University of Chichester.

The revamped windows were revealed at a special ceremony with vice-chancellor Professor Clive Behagg.

“After 50 years discarded and forgotten, it was wonderful to be able to restore these iconic windows to the heart of our community once more,” he said.

“I am delighted so many people were able to see the windows officially unveiled.

“These beautiful windows are works of art in their own right and I hope people from the city and its region will to come to see them at the university.”

The painstaking work on the glass in the Old Chapel was funded by a grant from the Bishop Otter trustees.
