Montague Road in Cambridge has seen several leaded lights come to my workshop Here is the leaded light apart with the central portion still to be stripped Cracked glass needs to be matched and replaced – this is all caused by the distortion of the leaded panel. As the door slams shut the glass and lead have weight which gradually makes the panel creep – the further from the hinge the greater the force applied. I added some sponge draft excluder to the door surround to soften the closing. Client had this to say on completion:...

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...
