A daunting prospect - remove a pair of panels that were almost 7 feet high each, both of which were held together with a whisper of the thinnest lead ever seen, and both literally sinking into the wooden frames that housed them!

Not only was the wafer-thin lead in need of full replacement, there were many cracks and damaged areas of glass which needed to be matched as closely as possible to the original.

Add to that, these panels had been created with some gorgeous jewels and pressed glass - absolutely exquisite but also adding to the problem of the windows being crushed by the protective glass which had been put in place to 'protect' them at some point in the past!

A hugely enjoyable and nerve-wracking challenge!
