The new Great South Window of the SE transept was completed in November 2016.  Renovation work cost over £2.2 million.  Scaffolding covered the window for 7 years.

 

The original window dates from the 1420s whilst its stained glass is of the late 12th and early 13th centuries.  Its width of over 7.5m makes it the widest in the cathedral.

 

For stone repairs and replacement masons have made use of Lavoux stone.
