[1720] Eyam : Plague Window - Emmot Sydall & Rowland Torre

St Lawrence, Eyam, Derbyshire.

The Plague Window, 1985 - detail.

By Alfred Fisher, Chapel Studio.

In loving memory of Richard Creswick 1903-1972.

Emmot Sydall lived at Bagshaw House....


Alfred Fisher joined James Powell & Sons (known as Whitefriars from 1962) in 1951 after studying at the Liverpool Institute and Liverpool College of Art. In 1967 he succeeded E Liddall Armitage as Chief Designer of the Whitefriars Studio.


When Whitefriars closed its stained glass department in 1973 after 300 years of continuous production, Alfred Fisher co-founded Chapel Studio where, continuing to design extensively, he also fulfilled a long-standing ambition of establishing a separate workshop for the conservation and repair of historic glass. Since retiring from Chapel Studio he has remained active as a designer, and also a conservation adviser working in collaboration with the National Trust and English Heritage.
