Nave Clerestory Windows

As part of The Canterbury Journey – Heritage Lottery funded project, work on the conservation and restoration of the clerestory nave windows and stonework commenced in the spring of 2017. These stained glass windows date to 1855-1862 and were made by the Cathedral glazier George Austin Junior.
This extensive conservation campaign was made possible by the Heritage Lottery Fund, and The Cathedral Studios is concentrating on the conservation of these windows in the nave, at the west end of the building, particularly those in the northern clerestory, as they are in most urgent need of attention. All eight north windows of the nave were carefully removed and taken to The Cathedral Studios for conservation. They are now in the process of being reinstalled back into their original locations with the addition of protective glazing.
