Anthony Temperton


Anthony has worked for over 25 years as a stained glass conservator at York Glaziers Trust, one of the UK’s leading conservation studios, before leaving to work on fanlights and stained glass on a freelance basis.

Some of the prestigious projects he has worked on include:


The Saint William Window, York Minster

Chapter House, Wells Cathedral (c.1318)

The Ante Chapel, New College Oxford


The Great West Window, York Minster (c.1339)

Bunratty Castle, Republic of Ireland

The Rose Window, South Transept York Minster (c.1515)

Quality of Build

The strength and rigidity of the fanlight comes from the armature, which is made of brass (not the rust prone wrought iron usually used in the 18th century).

A number of other improvements on early practice have been made.

Fanlights are supplied painted white on the decorative side (unless otherwise requested) and left unpainted on the putty side, to be finished by the client after fitting.
