Mrs Helen Hughes (May 1941)
The West Window
Although Mr Gutteridge was ill and unable to visit Wesley House, he still kept his interest in its activities and Dr Hughes visited him occasionally to tell him about the students and their work. His gift to the Chapel is the stained glass West Window. Mr Gutteridge visited many churches and many designs were submitted to him before he made his final decision on the subject and its execution.
In contrast to the occupation of daily life portrayed on the walls, the window suggests to use the Holy City, with its golden strand separated from us by "the narrow stream of death". The artist is Mr Reginald Bell of Marylebone.
