A LUDLOW firm of solicitors is helping preserve the heritage of St Laurence Church in the town.

mfg Solicitors has donated £1,000 towards the work on the stained glass window at St Laurence’s Church – the largest parish church in England which has often been dubbed the ‘Cathedral of the Marches’.

The panes in the church’s east window date back to 1550 and have not been restored for almost 160 years. They are the only windows of their kind in the UK and depict the 10 Commandments.

mfg wanted to help ensure the window is not only preserved for future generations, but restored to the full glory that the craftsmen who made them envisaged hundreds of years ago.
