Skylight Repair

Below is a picture of a skylight which I repaired yesterday. It is approximately eight and a half feet square. Fortunately, although the replacement glass was slightly lighter than the original, it does not show in the photograph. You also have to look very carefully to see the relplacement and even when you know where it is, it is not immediately apparent. If you want to try to find it it is in the bottom left quadrant among the truquoise blue band.

The access was through a narrow hatch into the loft and then through an equally narrow hatch on to the roof slates. Immediately around the skylight is a flat area, so the two of us required t get the materials and tools up were not in danger of sliding off.
