A window into Greyfriars
The house was saved in the mid-20th century by siblings Elsie and Matley Moore. All of the windows were put in during the 1940’s by Elsie and Matley, who created them using recycled glass and often went about their restoration of the house in a rather unconventional way.
We're working to restore our windows to protect them from further damage. This will involve:
- replacing the 'tie-bars' on the windows, which will prevent the lead from deforming and cracking the glass.
- repairing gaps between the windows and their wooden casements - which will help us keep the weather out and the warmth in.
- applying UV filters to the windows which will protect the interior of the house and the lovely textiles from light damage.
