Tower Bridge

It was a pleasure and a privilege to work for Glass Build Design recently, restoring a leaded diamond window for Tower Bridge.

Missing panes were replaced with matching old glass...

Just plain glazing in diaper pattern but from an engineering marvel and one of London's best known icons!

Though Tower Bridge is closed at the moment due to the Corona virus you can find out more about this landmark structure and it's changing programme of exhibitions on their website here.
