Explore the collection
The Stained Glass Museum's collection includes a large number of windows which have been removed and/or rescued from a variety of buildings across the UK and beyond. Many were originally designed for and installed in churches, synagogues and chapels, some of which no longer exist. Other windows came from hospitals and houses.
Using google maps we have created an online map which shows where some of the windows in our collection came from. The map pinpoints public buildings in cities, towns and villages where some of the stained glass windows in our collection were originally installed. The original location of over 100 windows in the museum's collection are plotted on this map and we hope you enjoy exploring it.
How to use the map
Using the tab on the upper left hand side, you can choose to view this map in several different ways.
● The green map pins show buildings which still survive and remain used for their original purpose.
● The blue map pins show buildings which have been partly- or completely demolished.
● The pink icons show buildings which still survive but have been repurposed, for commercial, domestic or other use.
Click on each map pin to find out more information about a particular stained glass window.
This map only includes windows in the museum's collection which were originally installed in an architectural framework within a public building. It excludes glass made exclusively for domestic use, panels on loan to the museum and studio glass or exhibition panels. We have also excluded glass where we have incomplete information regarding the original location of a window or building.
