Crichton Memorial Church
This beautiful monochrome window was designed and made by Oscar Paterson. The soft sandstone was deteriorating and the window had to be completely removed for new stones to be carved and installed. Full conservation of the window was undertaken at the same time.
Unfortunately most of the on-site work was done over winter
Each panel was carefully removed, numbered, wrapped, and taken back to the studio for restoration.
Each panel was really not in good condition. Most had to be completely re-leaded.
Other panels only required partial re-leading, or glass replacement in-situ. There were over 70 panels to restore in four months.
The weather for installing the windows hadn't improved.
The restored windows were re-installed into the new stonework using new non-ferrous T bars and lime-mortar.
