Great East Window, York Minster

Client/Developer: Chapter of York
Architect/Designer: Arrol & Snell
Builder: York Glaziers Trust


The largest expanse of medieval glass in Britain with over 300 panels, constructed between 1405 and 1408, has been dismantled, cleaned, repaired and restored by the York Glaziers Trust on behalf of the Chapter of York. New techniques including UV-resistant glass and a bespoke, ventilated protective glazing system have been combined with extensive research into the original glazing techniques and the interpretation of the window’s complex narrative depicting the Beginning and End of Time. The trust’s expert glass painters have trained the next generation of conservation specialists as an integral part of the project.
