Contents of an Old Windsor church documented in book

The contents of an Old Windsor church have been documented in a leather-bound book.

Windsor and Maidenhead Decorative and Fine Art Society presented the volume to the Rev Mary Barnes of the Parish Church of St Peter and St Andrew, in Church Road, on Tuesday.

Barry Bacon from the society led the project, which took seven years to complete, with a year's delay after a fire at the church in 2008.

Roger Askew, chairman of the society, said: "The volume is a substantial document of important historical information including furniture, metal plaques and brass plates.

"The reverend was very pleased that the book had been completed and Barry and the team deserve a big congratulations."

A copy of the volume will also be given to the head office of the National Association of Decorative and Fine Art Societies in London and the Victoria and Albert Museum.
