Stained Glass Conservation

Two of our restored Chancel Windows –

The stained glass windows at the west end of the church were refurbished ten years ago.

One of the problems encountered when assessing the stained glass windows was the huge quantities of paint splashed on the glass when the grilles were repainted many years ago without due care and attention.  Some examples are given below –

THE CHANCEL WINDOWS

The five windows in the chancel consist of three single lancets, each with quadrfoils and two small roundels above, and two double lancents with hexafoils above. These windows are full of rich colouring, fine painting, and exquisite floral details, with lilies and passion flowers at the top and the bottom of the window.

All the stained glass windows in the church have now been restored by Stefan Oidtmann & Co. of Germany except the two in the north nave and the six in the choir area, which will be done when the tower work is undertaken.

The two windows below will be restored as part of the next phase of the project commencing in January 2017.
