From ‘the Word’ to ‘the Eucharist’ in fifty years - reflected in sketch and photograph. Oxford Movement inspired liturgical change in the church of St. Margaret, Dunham Massey, Cheshire. Christine Mona Armstrong

In this essay, by comparing an 1856 London Illustrated News sketch of the interior of St. Margaret’s Church, Dunham Massey, Cheshire with a photograph of works completed on the chancel in 1905, I will provide an answer to the question: ‘Why, within fifty years of the church being built were alterations made which effectively obscured one of the most impressive and prominent features of the original interior – the large east-end stained glass window?’ In doing so, I will chart the change in churchmanship at St. Margaret’s from pre-Oxford Movement worship of the Word to Eucharistic centrality.
