The Chancel Blog ~ John Boffin and the Titanic

Friday, 6 April 2012

Having publicised the story of the Diamond Jubilee Link, with our Ceiling and walls, we discovered another connection…

John Boffin, who worked on the tragic cruise liner before his death in 1914, is believed to have also helped create the detailed art work on the roof of the St Mary Magdalene Church, in Windmill Hill.

See story in the Enfield Independent.

Anna O’Neil from Radio London came to our Sunday 8:00 am service on 15th April 2012 to report on the link.

Direct soundtrack of the relevant portions are below.
