THE stained and leaded glass windows at an historic Midlothian church are being restored thanks to a new heritage fund.
The repair work at Rosslyn Chapel has attracted a £100,000 grant from WREN’s Heritage Fund and has already enabled the glass conservationists to focus on the east window.
The new fund will help protect Grade 1 and 2* listed buildings and structures of historical importance across the country. WREN distributes landfill tax funds to projects within a 10-mile radius of landfill sites.
WREN managing director Peter Cox said: “WREN makes a difference to people’s lives by awarding grants to community, environmental and heritage projects across the UK. It’s vital that we support and assist the long-term survival of historical sites such as Rosslyn Chapel.”
