£400,000 repairs to begin on damaged stained-glass windows at Lincoln Cathedral

Work to begin repairing and restoring a set of medieval stained glass windows at Lincoln Cathedral will begin next summer.

The cathedral's works department is planning a £400,000 restoration of all four lancets underneath the Bishop's Eye Window, in the South Transept.

As reported in the Echo, a 13th-century medallion depicting Moses in a Biblical scene in one of the panels, was smashed into pieces two years ago as a would-be thief fled.

A modern copy was installed after the incident and the original will eventually be put back in.
