It's out and work is underway!
This is the moment when the final and biggest piece of window was removed from its frame , following which we all held our breath for a tense few minutes as it was very carefully lowered down to the balcony floor and then taken downstairs.
Dennis and his team have done this many times before and they are all extremely skilled at their job, but each window is different and working at height on scaffolding certainly adds to the challenge.
This all took place last Tuesday and the windows are now safely in the Design Lights Workshop near Bolton and the restoration process is underway. I'm visiting them tomorrow to see the team working on the window.
Two days later, last Thursday, the team from Robinsons Preservation in Salford arrived to remove the old frame. You can see what poor condition
it's in from this picture.
Robinsons will build a completely new frame and install it before, finally, the newly-restored glass goes back in. The entire window space is now boarded up until the frame and the window work is complete.
I hope you're enjoying these brief updates on your window, I'll keep in touch as the work progresses.
