Repairing Victorian stone windows

Making indent repairs to a stone window. The first picture shows the new pieces oversize pinned and resin-fixed into place, and the third one has been shaped.

The four cutout sections had been made when a greenhouse was fixed into it many years ago.

The second picture below shows the near completed work with all indents cut to finished face. The repair includes the left-hand transom — the horizontal bar — that I put a stainless steel bar along to repair a complete crack at each of its ends. Where the second mullion meets the transom (in the top photo before it was filled) you can just see the black hole where the hole for the bar was drilled leftwards. This double cracked transom was loose but not removable so it was just pinned through lengthways and resin fixed and then used Lithomex to repair surface damages.

In a few years the repairs will be difficult to distinguish
