Historic England Digitisation Project

The project is to initiate an online educational web page to highlight the significant murals and stained-glass windows created by a
foremost 19th Century English Artist, James Eadie-Reid.


The current Covid-19 situation requires that we develop strategies, resources and skills to keep this heritage in the public view, rescue it as heritage at risk, promote ‘it’s significance as a national asset and describe its significance to a range of age groups locally and internationally.


This project provides information, interpretation and offer an online promotion of this national heritage asset to increase awareness, broaden audience engagement and participation, as well as create an ongoing dialogue through strategic content creation.


The project provides a basic framework of artistic responses to the artworks that will enable us in the future to establish long term partnerships with other creatives.


This webpage is the beginning of promoting this national treasure and significant artist whose largest collection is housed at MICC Chapel of Light, Cornhill road, Southwick, Sunderland UK. We aim to increase the scope of future digitisation and continue to create online products for new audiences.


The project has been sponsored solely by Historic England and we thank and appreciate them for awarding the grant to showcase this significant work in appealing and creative ways. We look forward to feedback and future engagement by our online visitors.
