Summary = Conservation works to the east window of the Union Chapel in London.
Value = Approximately £40,000
Location = London
Challenge = Secondary glazing has caused damage to the stained glass window.
Solution = Bakers of Danbury Ltd recently carried out conservation works to the east window of the Union Chapel in London. The beautiful stained glass window had opaque secondary glazing on the outside of the window, which not only prevented the sun shining through the window to show its decorative image, but had also caused damage to the stained glass.
Bakers removed the secondary glazing together with the debris which had gathered at the base of the window. The glass was cleaned and damaged stone was replaced with new indented carved sections of bath stone to match the existing stone.
By removing the secondary glazing and cleaning the glass, the beautiful, bright window has once again become a focal point for the Chapel.
