This 2-year conservation research project is funded by a generous grant from the Clothworkers’ Foundation.
It consists broadly of two stages.
Year one will involve a careful study of the windows to determine their condition in detail. Past restoration work will be recorded as well as the condition of all the components that make up a stained glass window such as the glass, vitreous paint, lead and putty.
In year two of the project the conservators will concentrate on cleaning the stained glass and making it safe for future display.
