Grade I Listed Headley Hall Farm, Bradford, West Yorkshire – Extensive Restoration & Conservation of Historic Leaded Glazing
A great deal of the glazing restoration and conservation work carried out by Lightworks is done so on behalf of the owners/custodians of listed properties. With two decades of experience, the company works closely with clients, architects, conservation officers (and on several occasions, English Heritage) to ensure the most suitable and sympathetic approach to intervention and use of materials is employed. This might be a simple matter of undertaking insitu repairs, removing and reapplying perimeter pointing or freeing up and re-decorating opening casement frames. Or, in the case of severe damage or structural failure due to the passage of time, glazing or casements may need to be removed for more extensive studio based intervention.
Mouth-blown cylinder glass is sourced from Germany (Lamberts), Poland (Tatra) and France (St. Just) specifically for use in historic glazing applications and alongside a number of specialist metalworking contacts built up over the years for repairs and renovation, Lightworks regularly specify the supply of traditional metal frames from The Cotswold Casement Company.
