5 windows that you won’t believe are in Yorkshire

1. Gorgeous Georgian sash windows

Newby Hall, Ripon

Built in the late 1600s and influenced by the style of Sir Christopher Wren, Newby Hall features some fine examples of traditional Georgian box sash windows. What’s more, most of the windows in the house are authentic. It is the perfect place to come for some home improvement inspiration if you love sash windows.

2. Striking contemporary curtain walling

The National Media Museum, Bradford

One of the country’s best museums dedicated to film and moving pictures, the National Media Museum in Bradford also boasts some impressive glazing in its architecture. The large areas of curtain walled glazing used in its design help to evoke an image of television screens, making it fit well with the overall theme of the museum.

3. A modern take on leaded windows

Leeds arena, Leeds
Whether it’s intentional or not, the breath-taking windows in the Leeds arena bear a striking similarity to leaded windows; albeit, with a contemporary edge. The arena itself won several awards for its architecture, and it’s a much loved, much used building in the Leeds region.

4. Gothic stained glass windows

Wakefield Cathedral, Wakefield
Yorkshire’s an incredibly historic county and naturally this history is shown through its architecture. Wakefield Cathedral has some beautiful examples of period stained glass: something that particularly caught our attention as a company that offers specialist glazing.

5. Authentic leaded casement windows

East Riddlesden Hall, Keighley
Built in 1643, this 17th century manor house has a huge amount of authentic leaded glass casement windows surviving, making it particularly impressive. If you’re looking for inspiration about how to use leaded glass effectively, come to East Riddlesden Hall and marvel at an excellent example!
