One window of this two-light Good Shepherd window was badly damaged during a break-in to the church, and a large area of the pastoral scene had to be recreated. This involved re-drawing areas of the tree, landscape and the lamb before selecting glass to match the original fragments and re-painting.
In England, windows in churches are usually set into stonework and so installation also requires some stonemasonry skills. John is pictured using bath stone mortar to repair some of the damage that was caused to the stonework, before installing the restored window.
We also restored several other leaded windows in the church which were suffering from age, and weather damage due to the stiff sea breeze that battered one side of the church, and needed re-leading.
