Restoration project, Aberfeldy
Extensive restoration work was planned on the Masonic hall in Aberfeldy, which had damage to two stained glass windows, one at either end of the hall, comprising three panels each. Pat volunteered to repair the glass panels as part of the overall project. It was considered not practical to remove the panels from the building, so the repair had to be attempted in situ - a first for us. In total 13 pieces of glass had to be replaced and re-cemented. 12 were broken or cracked or had been inappropriately repaired in the past, one had to be replaced because it broke in the course of removing the piece adjacent for replacement. Although the existing lead is coming to the end of its life, it would not have been possible to replace this on an in situ repair. The pictures show examples of the damage and the finished repairs.
