Holy Trinity Church, Llandow, Vale of Glamorgan
This project involved the removal of the two lights while a new mullion was made by the stone masons. The panels were badly bowed with pieces almost falling out and needed rebuilding with repairs to cracked pieces in the borders.
The glass was very gently cleaned removing old mortar and render splashes. The profile of the lead was matched to the original and the original wrought iron tie bars stripped back, repainted and re used. The glass was installed in conjunction with the stonemasons reinstating the mullion.

The top panel in this beautiful door was the only original panel left and was in a poor state of repair. The project was to restore the door to it's former glory by repairing the original panel and making two new panels to match.
New pieces were made recreating the original using traditional kiln fired paints and stains. Matching rolled and antique glass was sourced as close as possible to the original. This also led to the vestibule doors being restored where there was only the top panels remaining.
