Releading

The panels from the Great East Window of York Minster were dismantled as part of the conservation project. The panels had been re-leaded in the 1950s with a heavy, wide-profile lead which often covered parts of the painted details of the glass - in some cases obscuring the original design or iconography. This lead was removed, and conservation work was carried out. The panels were then re-leaded with a thinner lead, closer in width to medieval leads, enabling more of the colour and detail of the window to be revealed
