Eltham has all the right numbers with new stained glass – built to match the exisiting leaded lights in the door and use the same English muffle glass sourced from the team at Kansa Craft The build process is here from central panel and then the outer areas of the half moon:   The existing door is in the same style: Just around the corner is Eltham Palace  and Gardens and is a unique marriage between a medieval and Tudor palace and a 1930s millionaire’s mansion. From the 14th to the 16th century it was an important royal...

The damage was extensive but luckily did not affect the cinquefoil headers which were untouched and a pair of new rectangular leaded lights were required, The old glass was salvaged and replaced in the same position during the build The new glass in...
