Repair to the rose window







The glass in the rose window at St Alban's has been removed as a part of our capital improvements. It has had a perpetual leakage problem whenever it rains. Apparently, when it was remade after being blasted apart by lightning back in the 90s, it was made an inch or two smaller than the holes for the window. The gap was made up with caulk, which would only last so many years. The window is being reframed to make up the difference and ensure a snug fit. It should be back in place around the end of February / beginning of March.

I saw the plywood this morning and wondered about the process of how they carefully (hopefully) removed the panels. I'm glad you got the pics!

I have to say, with the new church lighting and the window's new "paneling", 5:30 Mass did have a different feel...
