A window for Wilfred

Thanks to our generous donors, our appeal has now reached its target

The Dunsden Owen Association celebrates the life and work of the renowned First World War poet Wilfred Owen, who lived in the village from 1911 to 1913. In 2014 the Association launched a special trail around the local places Wilfred knew. We also installed an interpretation board on the village green. The trail has been enjoyed by many visitors to the area.

The Association has partnered with the parish of Shiplake with Dunsden and with the Glaziers’ Company to launch a project to design and install a stunning new stained glass window in our church which will commemorate the poet’s time here. We are extremely fortunate that the design of the window was the subject of the 50th prestigious Stevens Competition, which is run by the Worshipful Company of Glaziers and Painters of Glass. Six prize-winners will be announced in May 2022. Local people will then choose the design of the new window for Dunsden.
