New Hartley Pit Disaster Memorial Stained Glass Windows

By Cate Watkinson

Abstract

Two stained glass windows were designed for the church of St Alban’s Earsdon telling the story of the pit disaster. The two windows represent the theme of ‘death’ for the left hand window and ‘resurrection’ for the right hand window, the darkness on the one hand and the light on the other.There is much written and recorded from the time and since the pit disaster at New Hartley in 1862 and this wealth of information became the basis of the research for the window
