Sandy Lane Box Gets Its Windows Back


August 2013.  All the glass that had been removed from the box was washed and carefully wrapped to guard from breakages, and replacement panes ordered from our friends at Unicorn.  Glazing sealant was purchased and now, finally, the box has had all of its missing glass replaced. Over the years, BT had replaced broken panes with an unbreakable (bulletproof!) polycarbonate that, whilst having the advantage of low maintenance, also became cloudy and discoloured over time.  This has now all been swapped for toughened glass. The finishing touch was a coat of gloss black on the footing at the bottom of the casting.  Once again, a number of local residents stopped to give their support for the project. The picture shows John Oxley and David Fairhead peering through some of the new glazing frames before they are fitted.
