Belfield Road, Didsbury

 

The staircase window of this late Victorian house was badly bowed and damaged. The stained glass panels were carefully removed, completely re-made using new lead throughout, all of the original glass was cleaned and broken pieces were replaced with matching glass.  The two outer lower panels were originally openers that were surplus to requirements, these were removed and the panels made larger to fit the new larger opening.  The stained glass was then encapsulated and fitted into the restored original frame.


The rear bedroom bay benefitted from the installation of toughened double glazed units to replace the existing 3mm glass and the leaded-lights were re-made and encapsulated into triple glazed units.  New hardwood openers were manufactured to replace the decayed softwood predecessors.
