Sheffield Cathedral

Fabric repairs rejuvenate this Grade I Listed Cathedral

Diocese of Sheffield
Year Completed
We worked on landscaping designs and fabric repairs to the Grade I Listed Cathedral.

The western lantern had become very dilapidated, and the 1960s decorative glass had been removed.  It was decided to reconstruct the lantern to its original profile, but with sounder details and materials.  A commission for new glass with a theme symbolising baptism (the lantern crowns the proposed baptistery) was won by Amber Hiscott.  The glass in the upper panels is French and the inclined lower triangles, German. The decorative glazing is now a secondary system sitting within a weather-proof outer skin.
