Manchester Town Hall

 

Over the last twenty years we have undertaken many in situ repairs at Manchester Town Hall.  These are often before a major event when the building is required to look at its best.


These mostly consist of repairs to leaded lights of the hallways and staircases.  These damaged piece of glass is knocked out of the light, the lead rebates then cleared of any remaining glass.  One side of the lead is then bent back to allow the new piece of matching glass to be inserted.  The lead is then bent back and black putty is pushed between the glass and lead to form a seal and make the window watertight once more. 


We have also fitted recent Lord Mayor’s names to the painted ceiling panels of the lobby outside of the Great Hall.
