Attention seeking requires lead light repair

Posted by on Mar 13, 2016 in Current projects, Restoration, Uncategorized | 0 comments

Attention seeking requires lead light repair since after all what better way than to use a thrown shoe? End of term required some celebration at Emmanuel College in Cambridge. Finding yourself locked out of your room in the University halls means you need the help of a fellow undergraduate. What better way to attract their attention than to throw a shoe at their window? I have repaired many leaded windows at Emmanuel College in the past and this is a simple repair. The lead came could be straightened and matching glass used to bring the...

2015 saw the major restoration for zinc lights in the former home of MP Sir Francis Pym near Gamlingay. He was legendary as one of Margaret Thatcher’s  cabinet ‘wets’ and an influential politician. Old Woodbury House is located on Gamlingay Cinques with fantastic views out over the countryside and is part of Tetworth Estate – period pictures show how the house looked during the 1960′s The project was complex in that the window cames are formed by eight way folded zinc sheet which is soldered to form a distinct...

Just in time for the Christmas break (in) – leaded glass restoration

Leaded glass restoration – just in time for the Christmas break one of my long term customers Bellerbys College in Cambridge suffered a pre-Christmas break in when an uninvited guest accessed the College through an upper floor leaded glass window. Bellerbys ongoing work can be seen here The opening window involved is the one to the left accessed from the roof:                 The window had been ‘jemmied’ in it’s entirety from the stone frame and as a result the leaded...

Solopark stained glass arrives

Solopark stained glass arrives – as I wrote in a previous blog here I have obtained stained glass from the Solopark  group and this week I have another batch. Included was this interesting stained glass panel depicting a small blonde boy collecting windfall apples and apparently watched over the gate by his grandfather or possibly caught in the act of scrumping by the orchard owner! The sharp eyed amongst you will have noted the missing right hand corner where it has received a hard knock. I have the three shards of glass and when I...

Stained glass birds roost once again in Surbiton.

I have worked on a whole series of properties in Victoria Avenue, Surbiton and the latest has seen a major revamp to the frontage. These windows feature original Victorian stained glass bird roundels The leaded windows fitted were quite simplistic and had been updated at some point but did feature some wonderful Victorian painted roundels of birds which it was important to build back into the new designs.  The front door featured three original Victorian leaded lights and we used this theme to drive the design. Colour choice was important and...

Sellotape works wonders holding stained glass…

One of the stained glass windows in this front door from Surbiton was badly in need of refreshing. The use of Sellotape holding panes in place always shows that problems have been building for some time. In this case some urgent action was required in order that the leaded window did not collapse entirely. The leaded units in front doors typically work hard with all the coming and going and the structure had begun to collapse with any number of  cracked and weakened joints despite the window being supported by external steel re-bars to...
