York Minster, Stone & Glass Window Repairs

As Surveyor of the Fabric for the Grade I Listed York Minster, Andrew Arrol is overseeing a range of projects both for the Minster itself and for other properties in the precinct, such as the 15th Century St William’s College, which now acts as a conference centre and restaurant.

The repair and conservation of the Great East window glass was a five year long project requiring highly specialised craftsmanship and expert knowledge of history, technique and conservation philosophy. Larger than a tennis court, the Great East window is the largest medieval window in Britain.

The repair of The East Front stonework was also a major five year long HLF funded project, and upon completion received a top national award for stone conservation and craftsmanship.
