Vandals have caused considerable damage to one of our iconic glass panes – part of a set of sentinel angels engraved by renowned glass artist John Hutton late on Thursday 11 January.  The damaged window panel is part of a set of sentinel angels engraved by glass artist John Hutton (1906 – 1978) which are an iconic feature of the west front of the Cathedral and an acclaimed piece of 20th-century art.

Thank You to everyone who has donated towards the repair of the Angel Door. We are currently seeking an artist, via a tender process, to carry out to work on a replacement panel to restore the door. We will update you when work begins.
