Stained glass restoration and security – Ladywell, Lewisham, SE13

stained glass lewisham SE13
These 2 panels, probably replacements for the originals, had begun to deteriorate and bow outwards.  We rebuilt them with new lead, replacing the broken pieces from the border.  For extra security and durability they were fitted behind laminated (rather than toughened) safety glass.  We had to machine the rebates in the door deeper; as there was insufficient depth to accommodate the extra thickness of the security glass.
