This Marian Retable originally by Giles Gilbert Scott, had suffered from an unfavourable makeover during the 1970's.
The ornate lattice work to the central apse was re-instated and the Greek Ionic pediment marbled to match that of the altar below.
We worked in close collaboration with the Vicar of Ss. Peter and Paul A.C. church in Rishton to fulfil his vision of the refurbishment for this stone reredos.
We designed the stencilled Gold emblems inside each apse according to his direction, and applied a colour scheme chosen by our client.
The vacant chapel of ease at Huncoat had suffered damage
to the reredos tabernacle and altar. The Dean requested that we replace the altar top and refurbish the reredos to re-purpose as a Marian side chapel. The altar and reredos were installed at a new location .
We worked closely with the Vicar at Ascension A.C. Church Torrisholme in renovating this wooden Victorian side altar, previously known as the Craven family altar.
