Leaded light repairs, Hither Green, SE13

The glass in one of these panels was very loose in the lead and the others had various cracked pieces.  All 4 were removed and the opening boarded over, the loose panel disassembled and remade with new lead, and new pieces of glass inserted to replace the broken glass in the others.  They were then all re-cemented and polished and fitted with all new beading, with steel support bars n the main panels, which had been omitted from the previous installation.  In addition the old and not very attractive leaded ‘lancet’ panels at the sides were replaced with laminated white diffuser glass.
