Senior Conservators Begin Work on Highly Significant Stained Glass from Burton Constable Hall

May 2019


Burton Constable Hall is an Elizabethan mansion house in Skirlaugh, East Yorkshire. Its long gallery contains highly significant German sixteenth-century stained glass. The Constable family were influential catholics, who also owned the Tixall estate in Staffordshire, where the glass had previously been installed until they were transferred to their Yorkshire estate in the 1830s. The panels represent important early examples of collecting ecclesiastical decorative art in the period of catholic emancipation. The glass is arranged in the bay window at the end of the long gallery. The Trust have removed the panels for cleaning and stabilisation, as well as photo-documentation.
