Stained glass door panel, Forest Hill, SE23

stained glass Forest HillThe middle pieces of this circle had come out of the lead and were at some risk of dropping out. Three out of 4 of the border pieces were damaged. The panel was removed and the space boarded over. After disassembly, we cut new glass to replace the 3 broken pieces, and since we were unable to exactly match the glass, a 4th piece was also cut out to provide a matching set. The panel was rebuilt with new lead, and fitted with 2 vertical retaining bars (not present originally), aligned with the leads, and secured to the panel with tie-wires – this should contribute to the durability of the panel.

Fitted in December 2011.
