Restored Stained Glass at Canterbury Cathedral

Canterbury Cathedral’s (and Europe’s!) most important restoration project is nearer its end. Started some seven years ago, a complete wall including precious medieval stained glass windows in one of the Cathedral’s transepts was dismantled and completely rebuilt.

The window’s stained glass, much of it dating back to the 12th century, was cleaned and is now ready to be moved back into position. See the work now in its final stages on a visit to the cathedral and precincts.

Canterbury Cathedral houses the most important early medieval stained glass collection in the country, and visitors from all over the world come to marvel at the skills of the medieval craftsmen who created these beautiful windows for us to enjoy nearly 1,000 years later.
