New panel made to replace damaged one.
St Bartholomew, West Witton
Over time the lead holding the glass sections together can deteriorate also the soldered joints can break causing the panel to become loose.
The best course of action here is to completely remove the whole panel & carry out the repair in the workshop.
The panel can then be completely dismantled, re-leaded, soldered and cemented to give it its original strength and make it waterproof.
With this done the panel can be fitted back into the window frame.
Panels that have only minor damage such as a few cracked glass sections can often be repaired in situ.
