Stained glass windows removed in Old Buckenham

All Saints Church windows off for repair
Both yesterday and today workmen have been carefully removing the medieval stained glass window panels that are in urgent need of repair.  It has been work carried out with extreme care and great skill.
Each shape has to be carefully recorded (naturally none of them are exactly the same) by cutting thin card templates to exactly fill the space, the mortar surrounding the glass delicately chipped away and the irreplaceable panel eased out and brought to ground level.
They are to be taken away, repaired and cleaned so that they can be reinstalled in all their glory later this year.
