Light, Glass & Stone: Conserving the St Cuthbert Window

Scroll to explore

Explore the medieval St Cuthbert Window through a new exhibition which tells the story of the life and miracles of one of Northern England’s most significant saints.

The accessibility features of this exhibition are listed at the bottom of this page


Learn about the cathedral’s project which started in spring 2021 to conserve the 600-year-old window, which is one of the largest surviving narrative windows in the world and among the finest remaining examples of the art and techniques of medieval glaziers and stonemasons.

Take the rare opportunity to see at close range original stained glass panels removed from the window as part of the conservation project.

Free with general admission – book your timed entry ticket here.

Learn more about the conservation project here or support the work by adopting a piece of the window’s stained glass.
