We worked in close collaboration with the Vicar of Ss. Peter and Paul to fulfil his vision of the refurbishment for this stone reredos. We designed the stencilled Gold emblems inside each apse specifically for this reredos.

Saint Joseph's Catholic Church, Accrington

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.
