RESTORERS AND DESIGNERS OF BESPOKE STAINED GLASS AND LEADED WINDOWS
We specialise in the conservation of Victorian, Edwardian and arts and crafts-style glass, and we are skilled in a wide range of techniques, offering both traditional and contemporary design to a diverse body of customers.
While our origins lie in the North West, Greater Manchester, Cheshire and Lancashire in particular, our enviable reputation has led to interest from further afield, meaning we now operate on a national level.
Most notably, we have worked on a number of restoration projects for English Heritage and the National Trust.
Other esteemed clients include: Gorton Monastery (St Francis' Monastery) - a World Heritage Site; Manchester Town Hall; Buxton Opera House; St Steven’s Tavern, Westminster; St Mary’s Church, Windermere; Salford City Academy; St Mary's Church, Disley; and TV programmes for Granada Television include Coronation Street, Cold Feet, Sherlock Holmes and University Challenge.
We also supplied and glazed clear antique glass and oak sash windows to The Cage at Lyme Park, Disley, Stockport for the National Trust and often use Heritage Double Glazing in listed buildings.
