The Flight into Egypt

By James_C
This is another detail of a stained glass window in the recently restored Lady Chapel in Chichester Cathedral.

The window was made by Clayton & Bell and depicts the flight into Egypt. It was presented in memory of Dean Burgeon (1876-1888).

The restorers faced a major problem when they came to remove the glass. The holes in the tracery for the ironwork that supports the glass had not been large enough to allow for the inevitable corrosion of the ironwork. Consequently the stonework of the tracery had split. The danger was that the whole structure would collapse as they dismantled it. Thankfully it didn't.

Thanks for all your kind support and I hope you enjoy looking at this beautiful glass.

Fantastic colours, and the light really brings out the detail in the window, nicely done indeed.
