Stunning stained glass windows in old Dunfermline Church ........



News 21st February 2016

TWO stunning stained glass windows are to help build links with Dunfermline descendants in New York.

The historical artwork features scenes from the Bible and dominate the interior of the former Erskine Church building.

Last week, the Press revealed Yes-U-Are Partnership’s ambitious proposals to transform the site into a multi-purpose venue.

Bob Rendall, Yes-U-Are development manager, is keen to see them preserved and said: “The windows were installed by the descendants of Euphemia Douglas, a childhood friend of Andrew Carnegie’s mother.

“She emigrated to America after marrying William Sloane and founded W & J Sloane. It was a furniture and rug company that catered for the wealthy elite in New York society.

“We want to make the windows a centrepiece of the building and re-engage with present day descendants of her family in New York.”

Douglas Chapman MP was invited to the site to see the windows and is backing the development.

Mr Chapman commented: “The Yes-U-Are development plans have a strong vision, which aim to transform the site into a variety of uses for the community. It has so much potential and the windows themselves are stunning.”
