Hospice Chapel Windows
Our hospice chapel has provided a quiet place for reflection and comfort for many patients, families, carers, staff and volunteers. The beautiful stained glass windows were donated by the congregation of Fisher Street United Reformed Church in Carlisle.
Due to structural problems, Fisher Street church was closed and demolished in 1987. The stained glass windows, along with a baptismal font were offered to and accepted by the Hospice Committee. The baptismal font is now a key feature in the Adult Unit walled garden.
It is though the large Rose Window dates from 1894. A two part window inscribed in one corner Gibson Sark is presumed to be installed by or in memory of the Gibson family from Sark Bank, Gretna 1908. Another window inscriber Hetherington was in memory of George I Hetherington, Session Clerk (Church Secretary) of the church in 1899. A modern two part window is the 1939 – 1945 memorial window installed in 1948.
