Stained Glass renewable resourcing

A front door always works hard and this one finally needed some  renewable resourcing in the form of stripping and re-leading.


All the original glass was salvaged and returned to exactly the same position after a clean and a polish – new internal steels along with new lead came added for core support and externally the copper ties for the re-bars were refitted. This door should now be ready for another 100 years of service.


The door is tucked away on a lovely remote farm in Stanton near Bury St Edmunds

The Parish of Stanton straddles the A143 road roughly midway between Diss and Bury St Edmunds in West Suffolk.

A population of 2,507 (2011 census) residents is well served with village shops including:- Post Office with Newspapers, Cards and more, Bakers Shop, Chip Shop, General Food Store, Hairdressers, Pub, Garages, A Petrol Station, A large Garden Centre with shop and cafe, also the Wyken Hall Farmers Markets and Leaping Hare Restaurant and shop.
