Our stained glass conservation studio is one of the most capable and experienced in the UK. Working from purpose-built workshops in Chester, our team of glass conservators, lead workers, glass artists, designers, historians and archivists are some of the most talented people working in this highly specialist field.
The studio can trace its history back to 1975 and the wealth of knowledge and experience it has established over that time is retained in the current studio team and is being fostered and developed in our studio apprentices as part of our in-house specialist training scheme.
Over the last few years South Tyneside’s foremost civic building and its associated council offices have been undergoing a major facelift. As part of the works to provide a modern working environment to allow the council to become ever more efficient, conservation works are being carried out to the Grade II listed Town Hall building.
Following identification of severe weathering and delamination of the masonry to the East Window by conservation architect Lesley Lloyd of Tenbury Wells, Recclesia were awarded the contract to carry out the conservation and restoration work to the stonework, the stained glass window and the wrought iron ferramenta.
