Weathered timbers in Lincoln Cathedral

Written on Monday 17th May 2010


From June 2010


The effects of 800 years of weathering on an oak window frame are about to go on display at Lincoln Cathedral.  As part of the ongoing conservation work on the South side, the Cathedral\'s stained glass team are in the process of restoring a plain glazed lancet window in the Works Chantry, one of the three small chapels in the South East Transept, near the statue of Bishop Edward King.


Nearly all of the original oak window frames in the cathedral have either been repaired or replaced over the centuries, but one of them, dating from around 1215, is almost complete.  It is very unusual to find an original frame of this age.  Unfortunately it is now in an advanced state of deterioration; it has lost its structural stability and needs to be replaced.  In order to preserve it and make the artefact accessible to the public the frame will be displayed in the Cathedral roof with some original medieval ironwork from the window. 


Visitors on roof tours will have the opportunity to see it from June 2010.
