Feature Window

Situated in the front of the Richmond Chapel is a stained glass window depicting the Wairarapa Valley.

The brief given to Barry Sears of Barry Sears Glass was to design an abstract view of the Wairarapa Valley – “something unique and local”.

The centre section from the bottom up leads from the deep rugged sea of cook strait into Lake Ferry and Lake Wairarapa with the meandering rivers and the townships of Martinborough, Featherston, Greytown, Carterton and Masterton flanked with ranges and hills as you move up the valley.

Daffodils, windmills, native bush and grapes identify some of the various areas of the Wairarapa and the landmark lighthouses of Cape Palliser and Castlepoint highlight the Wairarapa coast and the Pacific Ocean.
