A WINDOW into the past – and the future – is offered by the culmination of a momentous restoration project at York Minster that has taken a decade of painstaking work to complete because of its complexity.

Thanks to highly-skilled craftspeople from York Glaziers Trust, and benefactors to a £11.5m appeal backed by The Yorkshire Post and many others, the 600-year-old Great East Window is as good as new after 311 stained glass panels were conserved.
