My interest in the work of Trena Cox developed from seeing her beautiful stained glass at Chester Cathedral.


Trena Cox was born on the Wirral in 1895. Following a period of study at the Laird School of Art in Birkenhead, Cox moved to Chester in 1924 to establish her career as a professional woman stained glass artist. Her work can be found at over 66 locations throughout Cheshire, the North West of England and North Wales, with a small number at other locations further afield. Trena Cox made an enduring commitment to Chester and was a passionate advocate for the preservation of the city's heritage.

The Trena Cox Project aims to recognise her enormous artistic contribution to Chester and permanently establish her place in the history of Chester Cathedral and the story of the city.
