A world -famous stained glass window of significant historic importance, designed by notable architect Pugin for the Great Hall of one of the UK? most recognisable stately homes, is set to be reinstated for millions to see. After several years of painstaking work by highly skilled craftsmen, the restored window will now return to its home, 170 years after it was originally installed.
Created in 1850, the iconic Banqueting Hall Bay Window at the home of the 16th Earl of Shrewsbury, more recognisable today as ?lton Towers? is Pugin (Victorian Gothic Revival) in style and measures roughly 10m tall by 6m wide -the largest of its kind to be designed by Pugin for a private house! Historically, it is the most important window of its kind outside the Palace of Westminster! Pugin is as a key influencer of British architecture and designed the most British Iconic building ?ig Ben Tower?as well as much of the palace of Westminster.
Now, the window is being painstakingly and intricately replaced in a project that has taken over a decade to complete. The window was last removed in 2010 for refurbishment, however, at this time, the original manufacturers of the stained glass (Hardman? of Birmingham who first worked with Pugin to create the window in 1850) went out of business. After a decade of searching by the heritage team at Alton Towers Resort, two of Hardman? former craftsmen were found and commissioned to restore the window

In pic- Who: Professor Sam McKinstry
Why: Professor McKinstry has submitted a 2000-signature petition to North Lanarkshire Council calling for grass-cutting of open spaces to be made permanent (further to the council's decision to carry out a one-off cut of the overgrown spaces it is no longer maintaining). Suggested location for picture is a nearby roundabout which is still overgrown, causing visibility issues
